A forest garden is a food-producing garden, based on the model of a natural woodland or forest. It is made up of fruit and nut trees, fruit bushes, perennial vegetables and herbs. It can be tailored to fit any space, from a tiny urban back yard to a large rural garden. A close copy of a natural ecosystem, it is perhaps the most ecologically friendly way of gardening open to us. It is also a low-maintenance way of gardening. Once established there is none of the digging, sowing, planting out and hoeing of the conventional kitchen garden. The main task is picking up the produce! This highly practical, yet inspiring book gives you everything you need to know in order to create a beautiful and productive forest garden, including Basic principles Layout How to choose plants Details of over one hundred plants, from apples to mushrooms the most comprehensive account of perennial and self-seeding vegetables in print A step-by-step guide to creating your garden Full details of an example garden, and pictures of many more Forest gardening is an important element of permaculture. This book explains in detail permaculture design for temperate climates and contains much of interest for anybody wanting to introduce sustainable practices into their garden.
