Product description

Review

Martin Crawford has spent 15 years creating what is almost certainly the best forest garden in the temperate world...and the breadth of his knowledge matches the depth of his experience. I've been looking forward to this book ever since I've known he was writing it. --Patrick Whitefield, author, Permaculture in a Nutshell and The Earth Care Manual.

Even if you weren't going to try forest gardening, I challenge you not to want to by the end of this book. This is a seminal piece of work on truly sustainable gardening, written with great spirit and soul. --Aly Fowler, author and presenter, The Edible Garden

Martin is a true pioneer. His work deserves respect and celebration. --Permaculture magazine

From the Back Cover

Forest gardening is a novel way of growing edible crops - with nature doing most of the work for you. A forest garden is modelled on young natural woodland, with a wide range of crops grown in different vertical layers. Unlike in a conventional garden, there is little need for digging, weeding or pest control. Species are carefully chosen for their beneficial effects on each other, creating a healthy system that maintains its own fertility.
Creating a Forest Garden tells you everything you need to know, whether you want to plant a small area in your back garden or develop a larger plot. It includes advice on planning, design (using permaculture principles), planting and maintenance, and a detailed directory of over 500 trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, annuals, root crops and climbers - almost all of them edible and many very unusual.
As well as more familiar plants you can grow your own chokeberries, goji berries, yams, heartnuts, bamboo shoots and buffalo currants - while creating a beautiful space that has great environmental benefits. In the light of our changing climate it is important that we find new ways of growing food sustainably, without compromising soil health, food quality or biodiversity. Forest gardening offers an exciting solution to the challenge.
