Learn how to replace strictly ornamental plants with edible ones that fill a similar design niche. This might include substituting Chilean guava for a boxwood hedge or a persimmon for a large ornamental tree. How about strawberries instead of Vinca, or avocado for a camphor tree? The idea is to grow plants with dual purposes – creating an aesthetically pleasing landscape with ornamental edibles. Nancy started the Master Gardener Program in Santa Clara County in 1982 and coordinated it until 2004 when she went out on her own with her business called All Things Edible. She currently does professional fruit tree pruning and provides professional garden consultations to help people to grow as much in their yards as possible.
