Ground-Cover Layer Forest Design Plants covers plants between the Herbaceous Layer and the root layer. With some plants there is a good bit of overlap between the Ground-Cover Layer Forest Design Plants and the herbaceous layer. An example of overlap would be strawberries. Technically they are ground-cover, but they also meet the criteria to be herbaceous as well.
According to the Permaculture Research Institute, there are 7-Layers in a food forest. They are; canopy, understory, shrub, herbaceous, ground cover, vine/climbers, and root/tuber yield.
Plants coming soon: Strawberry, Mint
