Description

Hi, I'm Robin Harford, bestselling author of Edible and Medicinal Wild Plants of Britain and Ireland. Stepping back into the wild with this book has really felt like coming home and I am so grateful to the author for enabling this adventure. I feel if I can get to grips with the 48 common plants discussed in this book, I'll be a step closer to being able to knowing the environment around me on my walks. This did, however, help me to identify wild garlic in the early summer, which I foraged till I had no more room in my freezer!

The author has spent fifteen years experimenting and learning about wild plants and how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves. This guide is here to help keep you safe, however, please ensure that you use multiple sources for identifying plants.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Instead, you can download the accompanying PDF photo identification guide that includes multiple full-colour photographs of each plant to help make identification easy. He has been recommended in BBC Good Food magazine, Sainsbury’s magazine as well as in The Guardian, The Times, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph etc.

Cautions for plants, where necessary are given and if the plant has any other interesting uses then these are also covered. In only a few weeks this exceptional book has helped increase my knowledge of and awareness of, the wild larder that is always within our grasp. I’ve read many foraging books that have provided comprehensive pictures so that seems a bit of a cop out to me, not even illustrations so at least we could get the gist of what it kind of looks like and then if we do want to attempt finding it in the wild we could reference his guide?To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Please allow up to 10 working days for 2nd class mail to arrive, instead of the usual 3-5 days that we all used to be accustomed to. Very clear descriptions and uses of plants and in combination with the downloadable photo guide the book makes a real treat to read. Alongside a growing want to try and use natural, rather than synthetic, methods to provide medicinal remedies and a general desire from a lot of us to get back to mature this book has come along at a great time.
