The core of this site is a collection of plant portraits, covering the propagation, growing, harvesting, storing and eating of individual plants used in forest gardening. The Plant Portrait feed in the main menu above or the list of plants in the right sidebar (at the bottom if you are using a mobile phone) lead to articles on the species and techniques used in forest gardening, or use the Search box to find a species. The Plant Lists menu item gives information on many plants in table form, while the Get plants menu gives some pointers on where to get forest garden plants from and my own trade list.
