About this book

This unique plant directory provides an in depth look at a small number of plants. It illustrates the abundance of resources a single plant can contain and how by choosing a select few of these incredible plants you can provide for a large proportion of your needs, naturally and in a relatively small space.

Many of the uses listed such as dye, paper making or yarn may seem a somewhat whimsical reference to a bygone age where we had to create everything from that which was growing around us. The fact that the plants listed have these properties may seem irrelevant or just a curiosity for people experimenting in the crafts. But who is to say what we will need to provide for ourselves in the future, in 10 or 20 years time when the seeds you plant and nuture now, stand tall as a grove of mature trees?
