One of the most powerful principles of permaculture design is Edge Effect. Edge Effect is a very broad design term that mystifies many a designer. When I wrote Mastering the Growing Edge, I explained the use of a very small portion of that great principle -using plants.
The growing edge of earth-between-sky is the ‘edge’ plants grow in. Just think of it: we often get caught up with the mass of vines and spines that invades our gardens, and hack at it with every devilish tool we can devise; but all these plants grow with roots in the earth, leaves in the sky, and a very special point between I call the Growing Edge.
Want to progress from a weapons monger to a real gardener? Plants can be your tools for managing plants. In Mastering the Growing Edge, 10 models of the tools our temperate climate plant world offers us are made clear.
