‘Edible & Medicinal Wild Plants of Britain & Ireland’

I wrote this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone.

Each individual plant profile includes:

  • common name
  • scientific name
  • family
  • an easy to understand botanical description
  • multiple full colour photos of each plant
  • when the plant flowers
  • where it is found
  • a historical summary
  • which parts of the plant to use
  • how the plant is used as food
  • its nutritional profile
  • its traditional folk medicine uses
  • and finally, safety notes

 

For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.

I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.
