How to Make a Forest Gardenby Patrick Whitefield
Synopses & Reviews
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,
A good introduction to permaculture. Create your own perennial food-producing garden based on the model of a natural woodland with its many levels of growth from ground covers to tree canopies.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -153) and indexes.
