A must buy for anyone Atempting to create a forest Garden in the UK,
This review is from: Creating a Forest Garden: Working with nature to grow edible crops (Hardcover)
This Book was published just as we began creating a three acre forest garden. I can attest that the process the book takes one through will be invaluable to any one who is similarly engaged. In contrast to Dave Jacke and Eric Toensmeier's Two volume Edible Forest Gardens: Design and Practice Ecological Vision and Theory for Temperate-climate Permaculture (which in their own way is also an excellent pair of books - which has a US bias), Martins approach boils a potentially complex and overwhelming process down to its essentials without at the same time over simplifying. I'm sure that while we will make many of our own mistakes, this book has saved us a huge amount of trial and error, money, and probably a lot of heart ache and as well. Thanks Martin for your generosity in sharing so much in writing this book!
