Edible plants in London public landscapes (on-line)

An Investigation into the Attitudes and Approaches of a Group of Landscape Managers to the Inclusion of Edible Plants in Public Landscapes in Greater London

Under established conventions in the UK, ornamental plant species frequently dominate the soft landscaping of public space. Although there are examples of the use of edible planting in public spaces, there is little research into the attitudes and approaches of landscape managers in this regard. The aim of this  study was therefore to explore the attitudes and approaches of a group of landscape managers to the inclusion of edible plants in public landscapes in greater London, including the associated benefits, challenges and practical considerations, and the public response, and to generate hypotheses for further research in this regard.
