5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable information on creating natural gardens, February 15, 2001
This review is from: Plants for a Future: Edible & Useful Plants for a Healthier World (Paperback)
Plants For A Future: Edible & Useful Plants For A Healthier World offers invaluable information on creating natural gardens, woodlands, and farms that are in harmony with nature's ecosystems, and contain a wide variety of easily grown perennials and self-seeding annuals that are delicious and healthy food stocks for human consumption. Complete descriptions are provided for edible and other useful plants which are native to both Britain and Europe, and from temperate areas around the world (including the United States). These are edible plants suitable for an ornamental garden, lawns, shady areas, ponds, walls, hedges, agroforestry, and conservation projects. Author Ken Fern shares his experiments and successes in growing herbs, vegetables, flowers, shrubs and trees. Enhanced with b/w and color photography, Plants For A Future is an enthusiastically recommended, "reader friendly", compendium of information, personal anecdotes, and enriched for the gardener and horticulturalist with detailed appendices and indexes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful source, July 16, 2003

This review is from: Plants for a Future: Edible & Useful Plants for a Healthier World (Paperback)
a treasure of information for those interested in exploring new kinds edible landscaping. I cant really add to the review previously, other than the fact the book is mostly geared to the British gardener. Americans like me will need to do a bit of research about the climate and environment of UK.
This is not really a bad thing, but it would be nice to include a little more about the author's climate with a zone map

5.0 out of 5 stars I would give it six stars, May 16, 2009
This review is from: Plants for a Future: Edible & Useful Plants for a Healthier World (Paperback)
THis is one of the best permaculture/edible plants books I have ever seen. It is excellent, very well organized and very profound and specific. Still has its own personal experiences from the author and it is also very informative. Somehow it could have more pictures (besides the nice ones in the middle) but even with that, the source of knowledge and practical information and tips in alternative plants for food is excellent. I read it often!

This review is from: Plants for a Future: Edible & Useful Plants for a Healthier World (Paperback)
As we are in the middle of establishing our own permaculture forest garden, this book just hits the spot. An excellent introduction to temperate permaculture and implementing it in a forest garden.
