About this deal

I absolutely love this book, it is a very valuable foraging companion on wild walks and as reference when I teach forest school. And provides plant lovers with a much-needed resource for understanding nature’s most useful wild plants. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too. Cautions for plants, where necessary are given and if the plant has any other interesting uses then these are also covered. It comes with a free downloadable PDF photo identification guide that includes multiple full-colour photographs of each plant to help make identification easy.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I was disappointed as it had no illustrations and you would have to rely on written descriptions to identify plants. minute review of Robin Harford’s lovely new book on The Edible and Medicinal plants of Britain and Ireland.

Each plant description tells us which parts of the plant can be used for food as well as how to use those parts. Instead of providing a snapshot for each plant, Harford gives a link to a database of pictures which give a more indepth photography for each plant and a better resource for identification.
