Even without a garden you can grow a wide variety of edible plants around your home, many of which also have functional or ornamental properties. On Sunday September 15, 2013 the Seminole Bromeliad and Tropical Plant Society will present a program on using edibles in your landscape.
This free program will focus on trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials that produce food and thrive in Central Florida. Many of the plants discussed will be available for purchase during the meeting.
Just imagine walking out your door and picking fresh bananas, starfruit, guavas and pomegranate. Or try some lesser-known vegetables like longevity spinach, arrowroot, sunchokes and hyacinth bean. Planting a few specific plants will enable you to harvest homegrown food all year long, while enhancing the look of your landscape.
Join the Seminole Bromeliad and Tropical Plant Society for the next meeting and start adding some new edibles to your landscape. The meeting will begin at 2 pm this Sunday at the Garden Club of Sanford, 200 Fairmont Dr., Sanford, FL (located one block south of Lake Mary Blvd).
