The proof is in the raspberry!
Since it’s the time of year to harvest autumn raspberries, this is a great opportunity to post this picture. Guild planting really does work and even better it has made a measurable difference among others such as superior flavor.
In this guild a number of different plants such as mint, rhubarb, an apple tree, clovers, marigold, radishes, currants, marshmallow, seabuckthorn, nasturtiums and even willow was grown nearby. Rabbits and deer prefer eating willow bark because it’s softer than fruit tree bark.
Here’s a snipped from one of Toby Hemenways presentations on plant guilds.
