Want to create an edible landscape.

Asked April 22, 2020, 2:37 PM EDT

I would like the latest information on proven varieties of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, and any other fruits and berries for the landscape in Estill County. The hope would be to have enough varieties to enjoy each fruit or berry from May or June until frost. Any help is needed. Thank you for your time, Duane.

Duane,

I have included links to UK Extension publications that should provide the information you requested. If you have further questions, contact me at ebaker@uky.edu or 606-723-4557. If you would like a copy of a presentation presented at a meeting I hosted last year about edible landscaping, just email me.

Hope this helps. Be safe!
