About Fertilizer

One great way to make sure your veggies grow big and strong is to use an organic fertilizer. Some of the best options include seaweed or guano fertilizers that are rich in the nutrients that vegetable plants need. Or you can make your own organic fertilizer with your compost!

Your Vermont Food Forest

Your garden can supply an abundance of food – seeds, nuts, fruits and more compromise a “food forest”.   A food forest is a multi-layered composition of food-producing plants.  It is ideally low-maintenance and produces a wealth of edibles.

Want to eat more organic food? A food forest is a great way to do that.

Permaculture design identifies seven layers in a food forest, from the tallest trees in the canopy continuing down below the soil layer.

There are many varieties of plants that are routinely available in Vermont garden centers, including a few examples below.

Surviving in temperatures above 32°F, the annual wildrice is in the Grass family. It’s scientific name is Zizania aquatica, and it has a None drought tolerance.

The annual wildrice requires between 30 and 50 inches of rain per annum. It is Native to VT.

The annual wildrice has a Indeterminate bloom period. Propogated by Seed, the fruit/seed period of the annual wildrice lasts from Summer to Fall.

While a plant may be listed as fruit-bearing in Vermont, you might not have the best growing conditions in your specific area.

Talking to your local garden supplier is a great way to learn more about the plants, shrubs and ground species that will be the perfect fit for your new food forest.

Are you growing an awesome food forest? Submit a picture and we may feature you on this site.
