Violette de Bordeaux Fig-One of the biggest bonuses of this very heavy fruiter is that it can give you two crops of juicy figs a year. It has an irresistible fragrance and a fantastic sweet, rich flavor. It produces small to medium purple-black fruit with the darkest red flesh of any fig. Some consider this to be the finest tasting fig. The Violet de Bordeaux is a natural dwarf tree that grows 6-10 feet tall. Its size makes it perfect as an accent tree for a small space.

Permaculture guilds are groups of organisms – plants, animals, fungi, bacteria etc. – which work particularly well together. These can be those observed in nature such as the White Oak guild which centers on the White Oak tree and includes 10 other plants.

The herb tarragon (Asteraceae Artemisia dracunculus) makes a great companion plant for veggie gardens. The scent and taste of tarragon is disliked by many garden pests, and it does a good job of repelling them naturally. It is also reputed to be a nurse plant — a plant which enhances growth and flavour of companion crops.
