Addy Fern Forest Gardener: Addy runs Plants for a Future a 28 acre forest garden in Cornwall:

  • Perennial salad plants supplying fresh nutritious salads throughout the year.
  • Fruiting trees and shrubs. In addition to the conventional fruit crops, we also grow many unusual and delicious fruits which allow us to eat fresh fruit all year round. Some of these fruits are also highly nutritious superfoods, such as Hippophae and Elaeagnus.
  • Various protein, carbohydrate and oil-rich seed and root crops.
  • A wide range of medicinal plants, many of which are also foods.
  • Other useful plants, supply various useful commodities such as soaps, fibres and fuel.
  • Lots of native plants, especially trees and shrubs, to provide a wild-life haven for the benefit of humans as well as the environment. About half the land was planted to native woodland in the early 1990’s.
