How to make a forest garden, 4 Aug. 2011
I am in the very early stages of planning my Forest Garden and this book has been very helpful.
What is covered very well are the many aspects of choosing the plants you wish to include in the garden. I discovered many plants which I will consider for the garden and have learnt a lot about those I have chosen. They are discussed in sufficient detail to give some degree of confidence in selection, many of which I would not have considered.
The only part of the book, which understandably is difficult to cover, is the planning aspects of the garden. But I understand that every piece of ground is going to be unique so offering a planning solution for all is difficult.
The references for plant suppliers and species is very comprehensive.
A book well worth reading if you are interested in Forest Gardening.
