Product description


"Forest Gardening is a worthy successor which has brought the essence of all his previous writings together... His own back garden has over a hundred different species and variety of plants... Robert Hart has written an invaluable philosophical manual for the practice of Self Sufficiency and the Good Life ahead." - -- Rodney Aitchtey, The Vegetarian

"Robert Hart's tiny forest garden in Shropshire, covering no more than an eighth of an acre, is quite unlike anything I have seen in Britain or elsewhere in Europe. It is almost tropical in its lushness and fertility, and overflows with an abundant and tantalising variety of things to eat... An inspirational, optimistic book." -- Fiona Anderson, Tree News


Designed to achieve the utmost economy of space and labour, a forest garden is a tiny imitation of a natural forest. Once established, it requires minimal maintenance, and can provide year-round produce of herbs, fruit, nuts and root and perennial vegetables. This book includes guidelines on how to design and maintain a forest garden, and lists recommended species for temperate, tropical and sub-tropical climates.
