Hello ...... I have a Victorian Queen Anne Cottage in Berkeley, CA ..... I've been creating gardens around it for about five years now ..... have put in three apple trees, two pear trees, a lemon, a mandarin, a grapefruit, a medlar ..... nine blueberry bushes. Have a mature fig and mature Bearss lime and Meyer lemon (dwarf). I sort of "collect" columbines, daisies, poppies, iris. Meaning I can't decide which ones I want so I just get some of each. I've also put in a Magnolia denudata and some rhododendrons. Now I'm incorporating some camellias in this area. I'm a former geologist so the garden is also full of rocks. Have herbs and roses too. An asparagus patch. Strawberry plants wherever I can fit them in. It is an edible landscape. In summer, basil and peppers and eggplant and tomatoes here and there. I do swiss chard and green beans and snap peas and beets and POTATOES!!! ( I love to grow potatoes) and pumpkins in the community garden a few blocks away.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z9 CA
