Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Martin Crawford has spent 15 years creating what is almost certainly the best forest garden in the temperate world...and the breadth of his knowledge matches the depth of his experience. I've been looking forward to this book ever since I've known he was writing it. --Patrick Whitefield, author, Permaculture in a Nutshell and The Earth Care Manual.

Even if you weren't going to try forest gardening, I challenge you not to want to by the end of this book. This is a seminal piece of work on truly sustainable gardening, written with great spirit and soul. --Aly Fowler, author and presenter, The Edible Garden

Martin is a true pioneer. His work deserves respect and celebration. --Permaculture magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 growing 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 have 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, almot 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 of biodiversity. Forest gardening offers an exciting solution to the challenge.

Très complet bien que moins volumineux que celui de Jacke et Toensmeier, présentation soignée, très bien illustré. Le jardin-forêt est le paradis sur terre des permaculteurs et permacultrices et Martin Crawford le prouve.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful book marred by typos and inaccuracies 3 juin 2011
Par a reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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.

Par Greg - Publié sur Amazon.com

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 étoiles sur 5 forest gardening made easy!!! (or easier at least) 4 septembre 2010

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!

Par Nicolas M. - Publié sur Amazon.com

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 étoiles sur 5 Top notch! 24 mars 2011
Par Frances (Amy) LeBlanc - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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.
