hello all! so apparently i'm asking a lot of my local nurseries. i am building a decorative urban food forest in my front yard. i want it to look like rosalind creasy's yard, but be ALL edible, all year round. i can only get a few bits here and a few bits there at the local nurseries. i spoke to the wholesalers, and they won't deal with me because i don't buy bulk of each species. (the woman at linnaea nursery was INCREDIBLY RUDE actually) i have officially cleaned out TWO local nurseries for this season, and dragging my 2 year old and a 5 month old baby to other nurseries is really tedious and ridiculous. this is MY project, not theirs! (although they enjoy eating everything and digging in the dirt) so: anyone have any clippings/seeds/bulbs/plants they're throwing out they want to donate to my cause? things i'm looking for: strawberries kninnicknick pansies chives lingonberry anything in the allium family daylilies saffron crocuses evergreen huckleberry saskatoons kiwi sage savory asparagus quamash oregon grape any sort of lettuce, root vegetable, asian vegetable, brassica...any leftover seeds at the end of your plantings... i've ordered seeds online for my fall/winter harvest, but for this spring/summer season, i'm hooped. i SHOULD have ordered seeds/bulbs/plants etc during the winter when i was planning this great garden but now i know! it's an edible learning process for us. ps-i found this great resource online about food forestry on the west coast. the guy build food forests, but it looks like someone put his book on the internet (HELLO STEALING) so if you print off a copy send him $10 to put towards his cause http://www.scribd.com/doc/2029243 thanks everyone! will post up pictures of the coming harvest.
