Ugh the benefits really are much bigger to make
of all I guess it makes sense to ust read this one As always the pictures are beautiful illustrative the order of the book very easy to navigate and most of the necessary information you need readily available What I especially like about Crawford s writing is his way of prioritizing knowledge Not all information of a plant is necessary to know if you want to grow it well Some is interesting but given that soils and plant ecology is so complex witness the lenght of Edible Forest Gardens you really have to cut out some of the noise Crawford has spent two decades sorting the noise from the important stuff and we should be very grateful for his wisdom Good nicely organized and attractively laid out A large selection of plants represented both common and uncommon varieties Good information on culinary uses of the plantsBad Seemed oriented towards the UK than US obviously fine if you live in the UK Info on cultivation was a little inconsistent and sometimes incompleteOverall this works great as a source of inspiration for new plants to grow but I d probably turn to another reference to "confirm the growing conditions and day to day needs of the plants. Carbon is retailed int he soil "the growing conditions and day to day needs of the plants. Carbon is retailed int he soil extend the harvesting season especially in early spring; they are often of value to beneficial insects than are annual vegetables; many perennial vegetables contain higher levles of mineral nutrients than annua.

Run into a simple mineral accumulator chart I do wonder if I ust overlooked them beforeI ve come across a sort of bifurcation in perennial polyculture critics it s either Toensmeier or Crawford I guess I d have to take Toensmeier if I could only have oneCrawford seems stingy with acknowledging others expertises The only reference to another book that I can recall was to one of his own books Most of the other authors in this field are very "generous with their recommendations and citations and reliance on others work "with their recommendations and citations and reliance on others work far I love this book Contains lots of plants that I didn t know we re edible Again like many of Martin Crawford s publications there is a lot of recycled information The most overall and general purpose publication is definitely Creating A Forest Garden Thus this one is really not a must read although it is immensely enjoyable inspiring and a good reference tool The list of species is larger too so if you are still not satisfied and curious for after CAFG then this is a good place to go There is a bit theory advice of plating patterns using the root layers to minimize competition etc If you really only intend to grow perennial vegetables and don t want to include bushes or trees altho.
