Landscaping with Fruit
and other Edibles

Mail Order Season begins in mid October 2014. Taking orders now!

For folks who can make the trip to the nursery, we're open year round except for part of July/August and Holidays. Come see us from Wednesday through Sunday, 9:05-5:08PM EST.

For all our local customers (and anyone willing to make the trip & save money!) we have our Pickup at Nursery Price List available.


As you work your way through our website, you'll notice a number of little articles in boxes. They contain valuable information on how to grow your fruit trees, as well as ideas on using them as beautiful, functional additions to your landscape.

If you like using fruit and other edible plants as an integral part of your landscape, we highly recommend that you buy Edible Landscaping by Rosalind Creasy.

When you are trying to create privacy in the garden, or just want to line a pathway with a short hedge, think of fruit trees. Many have flowers and foliage that are scented, and all are highly colorful when loaded with fruit. Fruit trees tend to provide more of a winter show than common ornamentals, and they are more functional as they provide fruit for the table as well. Want it even lower to the ground? What could be better than the row of exotic edibles in the picture on the left?

  • S-t-r-e-t-c-h Your Season

    It's always been my dream to have something ripe in the orchard 12 months out of the year.

    Living and gardening in the Lower South, we can come about as close to making this happen as anybody in the U.S. The trick is to learn to stretch your fruit season. By choosing varieties that ripen at different times, you can achieve the ultimate length of fruit season for each type of fruit you grow.

    The year goes thus: early spring brings strawberry and mulberry. The summer is loaded with peaches, plums, apples and pears. The berry patch is in full swing with blackberry and blueberry. Late summer and fall are the time for jujuba, pineapple guava and persimmon. And the winter store is citrus and pecans. Life is good!
