you know...i had those exact questions a couple of years ago and i hit up on
my state's extension services (state of new hampshire)....'cept i wanted to
know if i could plant edibles atop the leach field, and here is what i was
elderberry bushes (Sambuca) are the best edibles to plant atop the leach
field cuz its roots don't go deep so none of the waste liquids will go up
the roots and affect the plant. they also recommended sarvisberry
(Amelanchier) and currants, but i settled for the elderberries.
if you plant ANY kind of evergreen, but especially tams, you are giving an
open invitation to spidermites to come into your house and infest your house
plants. spider mites can come into ANY house, even if it's sealed, double
windows, etc., etc. don't take the chance.
