Edible Perennial Gardening – Plant Once, Harvest for Years

Edible Perennial Gardening - Plant Once, Harvest for Years

About half of my allotment garden is dedicated to temperate climate perennial edibles — vegetables, fruit, berries, and herbs that I’ve planted once, and can rely on for harvests every year. In this video, I show you some of the ones I grow, and a few others at the allotment. I also share some of their benefits and how I grow them in the garden and containers. There’s even a perennial that many people know as a common annual crop!

If you’re new to edible perennial gardening, think of it this way. Instead of sowing seeds every spring, perennials regrow each year, providing an easy, and often very early crop. Perennial edibles are also low-maintenance, long-lived, and save both time and money in the productive vegetable garden.

🌿 Question for you: Do you have any perennial edibles in your garden? Any ones that are very unique? We’d love to hear about them!
