What is your most successful/favorite guild so far? Do you replicate most of your guilds around your keystone species, or are most of them different?
BTW - I look forward to your video, and have found your website very helpful, all the way down to the links section
Great question Aimee. All the onion family is great. Chives, garlic chives, egyptian onion, perennial
bunching onion, perennial bulbing onion, wild garlic (ramps), garlic, all work very well. All the herbs where there is enough
sun. Perennials for beauty and nectar, use lots of them. Perennial vegetables
work great. We are trialing a bunch of them and are working out our top 15.
Certainly rhubarb, asparagus, sea kale, sorrel, are top of mind. We should
have a good supply of seeds for most of these by the fall and will be starting a seed
sideline to provide one stop shop for all things Permaculture
Orchard in the next years. Read Mollison's 'phases of abundance', we have reached abundance for most plants.
: we are still trying combos. So far everything has worked well to neutral. Only a couple of plants did not work but only because we use plastic mulch
(loosetrife tried to lift the plastic).
