Low Maintenance Perennials for Your Garden

Posted By admin On June 5, 2014 @ 8:00 am In Garden & Agriculture,Permaculture | Comments Disabled

It’s Perennial Gardening Month, so what better time to be introduced to low maintenance perennials suited for gardeners of all interests and abilities. Perennials are remarkable plants that, once established, can be harvested for years, some even decades, with little effort on your part.

In his book, Perennial Vegetables [1], permaculture and plants expert Eric Toensmeier profiles more than 100 of the best veggies you can plant to help turn your landscape into an edible Eden. In the excerpt below, Toensmeier provides an overview of a couple key plants to consider growing in your backyard.

Meet the tender perennial goldenberry and the self-seeding annual ground cherry. Their unique flavor is sweet, slightly nutty, reminiscent of a tomato, and a bit musky—the perfect addition to any gardener’s table.

Happy perennial planting!
