Berry fruits have long been used and appreciated in the kitchen, but the aesthetic and practical benefits they bring to the garden landscape are all too often ignored. Whether for the ground cover effect of a strawberry plant, the colorful autumn foliage of a blueberry plant, the climbing trait of a grapevine, or the hedge potential of an elderberry bush, these plants are highly versatile contributors to a range of garden environments. And growing such gems in your own backyard means convenient access to savory fruits for the table or for sale.

An Interview with Barbara L. Bowling Timber Press: What advice would you offer to incorporate berry plants as ornamentals in the landscape?
Barbara Bowling: Get the site right. Be prepared to maintain the plant appropriately. It's more important with food-bearing plants to have some idea what the plant will require prior to planting it. The cost of not knowing the way the plant grows, the maintenance it will require, or the final form it will attain is perhaps higher than with most landscape plants. The risk of not controlling pests can be high, though many of these plants do just fine with little or no pesticide application. Specifically, you may have rotting berries in your landscape -- hardly appealing! Or, if you didn't account for the fact that raspberries sucker from the roots and planted them next to a hostile neighbor, you may have an angry person to deal with.
