Kurzbeschreibung

13. April 2010
Forest gardening is a novel way of growing edible crops - with nature doing most of the work for you. A forest garden is modelled on young natural woodland, with a wide range of crops grown in different vertical layers. Unlike in a conventional garden, there is little need for digging, weeding or pest control. Species are carefully chosen for their beneficial effects on each other, creating a healthy system that maintains its own fertility. 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 detailed directory of over 500 trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, annuals, root crops and climbers - almost all of them edible and many very unusual. As well as more familiar plants you can grow your own chokeberries, goji berries, yams, heartnuts, bamboo shoots and buffalo currants - while creating a beautiful space that has great environmental benefits. In the light of our changing climate it is important that we find new ways of growing food sustainably, without compromising soil health, food quality or biodiversity. Forest gardening offers an exciting solution to the challenge.

Positive News - Summer 2010 "If you are seriously considering the creation or maitenance of a forest garden then you would do well to have this book on your shelves.

Gardens Illustrated "Martin Crawford has produced a spectacularly useful guide to new horticultural and ecological terrain of great importance."

WWOOF Ireland "Martin's book is visually stunning with beautiful photography and illustrations, accompanying very informative and well constructed text." Self Sufficient-ish Website - 11 June 2010 "This book is a must if you are interested in producing food from your garden, becoming more self-sufficient or just curious about plants and their uses."

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

"Martin is a true pioneer and his work deserves respect and celebration." - Permaculture Magazine "Martin Crawford is a frontiersman, a pioneering teacher and an inspiration. Both his work and his garden are national treasures." - Chris Nichols, Director of the Ashridge MSc in Sustainability and Responsibility. Martin started his working life a computer programmer but his passion for organic gardening quickly led to a change in career. He has had broad and varied horticultural/agricultural experience over the last 25 years - he has worked for the Yarner Trust in North Devon, teaching small-scale organic agriculture; grown food for a small hotel on the Isle of Iona; restored the walled gardens of a manor house in mid-Devon; and run his own organic market garden and tree nursery in South Devon. His experience led him to the concept of forest gardening as a sustainable system that can flourish in our changing climate conditions, and it was this that led to the founding of the Agroforestry Research Trust in 1992, a non-profit-making charity that researches into temperate agroforestry and all aspects of plant cropping and uses, with a focus on tree, shrub and perennial crops. At his 2-acre forest garden in Dartington, Devon, planted 15 years ago, Martin systematically researches plant interactions and unusual crops. He also runs a commercial tree nursery specialising in unusual trees and shrubs, and has an 8-acre trial site, researching fruit and nut trees. Martin teaches courses on Forest Gardening and Growing Nut Crops, writes books and edits a quarterly journal, Agroforestry News. His book Creating a Forest Garden - the forest gardening 'bible' - was published in 2010. His other books include Cherries: Production and Culture, Directory of Apple Cultivars, Directory of Pear Cultivars, Peaches and Apricots, Plums: Production, Culture and Cultivar Directory, Currants and Gooseberries, Blackberries and Raspberries, Chestnuts: Production and Culture, Hazelnuts: Production and Culture, Walnuts: Production and Culture, Bamboos, Ground Cover Plants, Nitrogen-fixing Plants for Temperate Climates, Timber Trees for Temperate Climates, Edible Plants for Temperate Climates,Useful Plants for Temperate Climates, Plants for Hedging, Plants for Basketry, Bee Plants and Dye Plants. His latest book, How to Grow Perennial Vegetables, was published in 2012. He is a director of 'Gaia', a Trust formed by James Lovelock to further his work. He lives in Dartington with his wife and two children. See www.agroforestry.co.uk for more information.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Der ungewöhnliche Obst- und Gemüsegarten 18. Mai 2012
Von babsifav
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch ist wirklich ein umfassendes Nachschlagwerk für alle, die gerne jenseits des klassischen Gemüsebeets bzw. der Beerenhecke essbares im Garten ziehn wollen. Steht bei mir immer griffbereit, weil z.B. solche Fragen behandelt werden wie "Wie viel Schatten verträgt Pflanze X und trägt trotzdem Früchte?". Ich habe wegen des Buches u.a. einen Szechuanpfeffer gepflanzt und freue mich schon sehr auf die erste Ernte im Herbst.
Viele der weniger bekannten Pflanzen lassen sich problemlos im Ziergartensortiment guter Gärtnereien entdecken!

3.0 von 5 Sternen weiße schrift am schwarz/weiß kindle?? 21. August 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
es ärgert doch sehr, wenn die pflanzennamen in so einem buch auch in der kindle version weiß = unsichtbar sind...äußerst wesentliche informationen sind folglich nur am pc oder farb-kindle ersichtlich...so gedankenlos aufbereitet dürfte die kindle-version wirklich nicht verkauft werden...inhaltlich ist an dem buch aber nichts auszusetzen!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful book marred by typos and inaccuracies 3. Juni 2011
Von a reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This was a bit of a splurge for me; having known Martin Crawford's name for years, I was really looking forward to seeing his work in print. I must say that the actual book is a bit of a disappointment. I knew that it would be aimed at a UK audience, so that's not a strike against it. In fact, it joins wonderful works by Patrick Whitefield and John Seymour to round out the picture of British forest gardening. But despite the beautiful photography, the book is neither as practical nor as detailed as Gaia's Garden or Edible Forest Gardens. This book adds very little to what they have already contributed, with the exception of a thoughtful consideration of global climate change and its presumed effect on forest gardening, and a chapter on fungi.

More damning, the text is full of typos, and several of the photographs are misplaced and mislabeled. A picture illustrating Oregon grape is actually some sort of currant, for example. Discussions of design are general to the point of frustration; the section on water use says, in essence, "in a drought you'll use more than you think" and then spends two pages on irrigation methods. Again, it's possible that a British climate requires less thought about water than the southeastern U.S., but that sort of generality pervades the book. Save your money for Jacke and Toensmeier.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic Resource - Buy It! 22. August 2010
Von Greg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I just finished reading "Creating a Forest Garden" cover to cover. It's one of the best books on forest gardening I've come across and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in permaculture/edible landscaping. Martin's experiences with his forest garden are concisely presented to the reader and guide you to avoid many mistakes that are often made when starting out. The book not only guides you through the process of successfully laying out the garden, but gives many specifics, has pictures and information on many, many suitable plants and has many creative ideas born from working in the forest garden for so many years. If I were new to permaculture and forest gardening I'd start here. If you've read a lot in this area (like me) this book will become one of your best finds. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.

5.0 von 5 Sternen forest gardening made easy!!! (or easier at least) 4. September 2010
Von blackbear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
That's right five stars. Martin has a 16 year old forest garden and talks from experience, not theory. His chapters are brief and concise. I finished the book feeling content that I actually assimilated all valuable info presented by Martin. Unlike some other forest gardening books I've read (cover to cover mind you) this one is short, easy to read and understand, and by no means intimidating. Let me reiterate; martin speaks from 16 years experience. And the icing on the cake... the photos are of an actual forest garden!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Worth the price 25. November 2010
Von Nicolas M. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a good companion for Edible Forest Garden. It is less comprehensive than EFG but more user friendly.

Basically, it is a presentation of all species that fit well in a forest garden, with some instructions on how to design the several layers of the garden (canopy, bush, ground cover, etc).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Top notch! 24. März 2011
Von Frances (Amy) LeBlanc - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a beautiful book. There is information here that relates directly to the long term planning needed to "build" a forest garden from scratch. The information is presented in clear terms with simple illustrations showing relationships within a garden both above and below ground - this could be a handbook for beginning any new garden and especially for intensive planting. The photos are superb and inspiring.
