Offering inspiration for all gardeners, this book features beautiful color photographs and illustrations throughout and is divided into two parts. Part One looks at why and how to grow particular crops and how to look after them for maximum health. Part Two features more than 100 perennial edibles in detail, both common and unusual, from rhubarb to skirret and Jerusalem artichoke to nodding onions. This book also provides plenty of cooking tips. The accompanying 49-minute DVD, A Forest Garden Year, shows how to apply the principles of forest gardening to spaces big and small. Martin takes viewers through the seasons in his Devon, England, forest garden and shows them how to plan your planting to mimic the layering, density and diversity of a forest.
