Rosalind Creasy is the award-winning author of Edible Landscaping. She is a landscape designer who took the field in a more delicious, sustainable and ecological direction by landscaping with edible vegetables, fruit trees and flowers. She talked with us about the historical significance of ornamental gardens and how she was inspired to mix edible plants with ornamentals from her international travels. She also shared some tips on how to transform a yard into a more beautiful edible garden and the benefits that come from having such diversity. Check out her website to learn more about edible landscaping and to see some beautiful photos of such gardens: http://www.rosalindcreasy.com/
