The Cultivated Forager….something to think about for when it stops snowing!

What is ‘Cultivated Foraging’? Well, generally we think of foraging as searching for edible wild plants, fungi, etc.
However, what many people don’t know is that many of the plants we grow in our gardens also have hidden qualities; many of them are edible, often deliciously so! Think of roses, firethorn, himalayan honeysuckle, fuchsias….there are lots and lots.

I’m currently completing a book on the subject, illustrated once more by the lovely Lizzie Harper who also provided the delectable pictures for The Hedgerow Handbook.

If you’d like me to take you on a tour of your own garden to investigate which plants might be full of hidden surprises, I charge £30 per hour plus travelling expenses. It’s a lovely way to spend an afternoon! I also take tours in gardens that are open to the public but this needs a little more planning.

You can contact me via the email address.
