About this deal

Its a bit tricky trying to read it while looking at my phone while walking in the countryside looking for things I want to forage, all at the same time without falling over a log.

It comes with a free downloadable PDF photo identification guide that includes multiple full-colour photographs of each plant to help make identification easy. Our Hedgerow Guide aims to help you forage for British plants that are relatively common in the wild, easy to find and good to eat – and to avoid those that are inedible or poisonous. He wrote the book to help us rediscover our forgotten plant heritage and how to use wild plants as food and medicine.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. I was disappointed as it had no illustrations and you would have to rely on written descriptions to identify plants.

I love ebook versions of these sort of things because I can check them on the kindle app on my phone when I'm out and about.I have enjoyed Edible and Medicinal Wild Plants of Britain and Ireland, even as a reader who lives in the Southern Appalachians.

Instead, you can download the accompanying PDF photo identification guide that includes multiple full-colour photographs of each plant to help make identification easy. 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! 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. Never rely on one source for plant identification, and never eat anything unless you are 100% sure it is edible. I get the feeling the author threw this together quickly to get it published as soon as possible, it's a major downfall because it really shows.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.

While I have a huge interest in such things and appreciate his efforts, he's not took into consideration that we don't know what the plants he's taking about look like and he's not put this book together in a detailed manner; it's just sort of thrown together. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. It just kinda falls flat in the reading experience if you can’t visualise what he is talking about, also not everyone has access and means to be able to download a guide, many households do not have internet access nor computers or laptops to download guides too. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. This is a book about plants (some very familiar, some quite rare), which you can eat, but without any illustrations it loses all its value.As the opportunity to use what nature has provided, and to encourage more plants in our own back gradens that can be used for a range of purposes – rather than purely to look nice – foraging has become cool! Tell us why you liked or disliked the book; using examples and comparisons is a great way to do this. The species mentioned in the book are growing in my surroundings (Cork,Ireland) which makes it practical and simple to use. Each plant description tells us which parts of the plant can be used for food as well as how to use those parts.
