Eat Your Yard: Edible Trees, Shrubs, Vines, Herbs, and Flowers For Your Landscape by Nan K. ChaseInteresting little book. It provided a very cursory list of items to plant in your yard that are pretty as well as edible. None of the listings provide much, if any, growing or care info. Also, many items are really only growable in warmer climates, so if you are in California or Florida, youre in luck, Indiana, not so much. As I borrowed this book from the library I wasnt too disappointed, but if I had bought the book, Id have felt a little cheated.
Be that as it may, I did glean two or three ideas of things to plant, Ill just have to do research on my own to see if they are doable in my zone, and how to care for them.

What is meant by Growth Habit?
Herbaceous plants in botany , frequently shortened to herbs , are vascular plants that have no persistent woody stems above ground. Herbaceous plants most often are low growing plants, relative to woody plants like trees, and tend to have soft green stems that lack lignification and their above-ground growth is ephemeral and often seasonal in duration.
Most people are fairly confident they understand the difference between a tree and a shrub, but could you express it? Most people understand that trees and shrubs are both woody plants, as distinct from the herbaceous, fleshy-stemmed plants that comprise the other half of the plant world. And we all think of a shrub as being smaller than a tree. But there's more to the distinction. The main difference between the two is that a shrub has several main stems growing from ground level, rather than one trunk The phrase "smaller than a tree" can be misleading, though.
Native Indiana plants are best suited for the soil and weather conditions in our area. As a result, native plants require less fertilizer, fewer pesticides, and less water. Native plants are necessary for healthy wildlife populations and help prevent the spread of invasive, exotic species. Some plants are very common, while others are endangered. Although, all can be threatened by invasive species if we do not diligently keep their populations under control. Click on the name of any plant listed for more details! You can also search for species native to your area with the Native Plant Finder from the National Wildlife Federation.
