Edible Shrubs – Landscaping & Lawn Care

Your hedge can provide more than privacy or a border around your yard.  Consider planting edible bushes.  That’s right, edible bushes!  Virburnum’s and chokeberry’s white flowers are beautiful in the spring and they provide great fall color, and the berries they produce in the summer are quite tasty.  Also consider blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, beech plums, serviceberries and hazelnuts.  Both the fruit and flower of elderberries are edible once they’ve been cooked, and they look great in a hedge.  Before planting an edible hedge, decide how tall you want it to be, and then choose your plants accordingly.  With the right mix, you can have a great looking hedge that provides color all year round, and dessert!
