Are any of your houseplants edible? A new book by the owners of the beloved rare plant business called Logee’s Greenhouses suggests that we make room for some delicious candidates among our potted indoor plants, including a range of citrus. Their book is called “Edible Houseplants: Grow Your Own Citrus, Coffee, Vanilla and 43 Other Tasty Tropical Plants.”
My guest today is Byron Martin, who with Laurelynn Martin co-owns and operates Logee’s Greenhouses in Danielson, Conn., a family business since 1892 that specializes in distinctive plants. We talked about citrus suited to growing as houseplants—except maybe when treated to a summer escape outdoors.
