Edible Gardening

Dennis’ 7 Dees believes in healthy living. Whether you want to make your own jam or salsa, cut down on grocery costs or become more aware of what you are eating, you will find everything you need in one place.

Growing food to nourish ourselves and our family is a natural ambition. Our garden centers offer a wide range of edibles to feed this need for exceptional homegrown produce. Western Oregon’s mild climate allows for an extensive range of crops and for specific crops the potential for nearly year-round harvest.

An edible garden is not only delicious, it can make for an attractive addition to the landscape, as well. Many fruit trees produce gorgeous spring blossoms and sport attractive foliage all summer long. You can train them into interesting shapes and they produce gorgeous, colorful fruit that lights up the landscape- before it lights up your table. Many vegetables also offer ornamental qualities! The bold red and orange foliage of chard, paired with the deep dark green of kale, make attractive offerings. Tomatoes, squash, peppers and eggplants offer their unique beauty to the summer garden, as they burst with delicious fruit. For inspiration and ideas, check out our article on Edible Landscaping & Incorporating Edibles into Your Landscape.

The Dennis’ 7 Dees garden centers have all the supplies you need to get started. We have healthy vegetable starts, available for the proper season, and a wide selection of amazing fruit trees that can be planted year-round. We have compost and other soil amendments to enrich your soil and improve your success rate. Our friendly employees are happy to offer advice and information on the care and maintenance of all edibles. We also feature events and classes to help educate and inform.  Edible Landscape Fair and our Annual Tomato Tasting are two events we host annually to inform and assist in variety selection.
