Growing food sustainably is becoming more and more important in the light of our changing climate. Forest gardening is a way of working with nature that is not only productive and low-maintenance but also has great environmental benefits. A forest garden is a managed ecosystem modelled on the structure of young natural woodland, with a diversity of crops grown in different vertical layers. Unlike in a conventional garden, nature does most of the work for you. 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 comprehensive directory of over 450 trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, annuals, root crops and climbers - almost all of them edible and many very unusual.As well as more conventional plants you can grow your own Nepalese raspberries, chokeberries, goji berries, almonds and hops - while creating a beautiful environment that benefits you and the ecosystem. Forest gardens offer one solution for a long-term, sustainable way of growing food without compromising soil quality, food quality or biodiversity.
