Bats over the main garden tonight 😍 you can hear the chirps of their echolocation in the videos! There are also some tree frogs singing in the background. #yousaythebatsarewise

Plants are not meant to be grown in perfect little rows with one or two types of crops planted together. They are meant to grow together with a variety of crops to help improve biodiversity, the soil life, and overall plant health. Let's stop trying to fight against or change Mother Nature and start mimicking her practices. #biodiversity #permaculture #notill #nodig #organic #regenerative #nongmo #saynotogmo #ediblelandscape #forestgarden #foodforest #biomimicry #regenerativeagriculture #era #eragardens #evolutionaryregenerativeagriculture

It's establishing very well in the market garden although we have made some changes to the initial design excluding Cytisus scoparius and introducing Miscanthus x giganteus - Giant Miscanthus which is a temporary addition until the shrubs mature . With biannual trimming of the shrubs I expect a dense hedge approx 1.5 m tall to have formed by 2020,  just in time for the imminent apocalypse :) #permaculture #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #foodforest #forestgarden #ecology Www.thepolycultureproject.com

The Biomass Belt - About 2 yrs ago I wrote a blog about our biomass belt. The biomass belt is intended to be a closed system, perennial polyculture dedicated to growing mulch and fertilizer for annual and perennial crops. The polyculture is composed of mineral accumulating comfrey in raised beds, nitrogen fixing ground cover sown into pathways and a nitrogen fixing hedgerow. For a detailed look at this polyculture click on the image below. #permaculture #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #foodforest #forestgarden #ecology Www.thepolycultureproject.com

Well you really do learn something new every day. The place where we are staying in Northern Spain - the #galicia region, is Hydrangea paradise! You would have never thunk it would you ... but they obviously thrive here, there are monster bushes EVERYWHERE. In gardens, at the side of the road, growing wild in the forests 😍. The cottage where we are staying - in a ravine between forests - has about 12 monster bushes in its garden alone in every colour between light blue to pink to purple to electric blue. Prepare for lots of hydrangea porn. 🤣 The florist in me can't help but tot up the worth of them too. They are VERY expensive in the U.K. There are also Eucalyptus trees everywhere in the forest here too. The air is so fragrant! I could literally smell it as I stepped of the plane. And Eucalyptus sits alongside fir trees alongside tropical palms. It's a strange mix. It's a garden of Eden here. The interior to me most closely resembles the forests of Yorkshire while the coast is similar to Cornwall. What a lovely combo. #northernspain #asturias #travelisateacher #forestgarden #galicianhydangea #hydrangea #birminghamflorist #suttoncoldfieldflorist #suttoncoldfield #igersbirmingham #independentbirmingham

We're living in an apartment in a town right now, but there's this amazing park just a five minute walk away. I love going there any time of day when I'm feeling a bit claustrophobic and it always makes me immediately feel better. Green spaces are so important! Bonus: we found out this park also has a forest garden 🌳 - - - #greenspaces #meadow #parklove #flowers #travel #apartmentlife #folksouls #boho #beautyeverywhere #sheexplores #totnes #daisy #nikond3400 #landscaphoto #travelguide #travelphotography #forestgarden #nikonista #getoutdoors #outside #travelmore #travelling #wanderlust #forestlove #dreamers #dreamy #flowerchild #cutehat

Pale poppies 'papaver dubium' along the road. I like their soft colour tone more then the more common bright red ones. Maybe because being here in the french countryside teaches me to slow down in everything I do. I become softer, living closer to my heart, my true self. No need to rush or prove myself to the world. By the way poppy flower look good in summer salads or collect the seeds for later use in the kitchen. . . . . #lifeandthyme #livethelittlethings #calledtobecreative #makeitblissfull #postitfortheaesthetic #verilymoment #thatauthenticfeeling #doitfortheprocess #livemoremagic #aquitestyle #theveydayproject #visualstorytelling #searchwandercollect #forageandharvest #forestgarden #forestgardening #sacrednature #permaculture #naturalgarden #locavore #naturetherapy #livewild #wildfood #nature #herbs #madebynature #hedgerowmedicine #flowersandotherstories

Chamomile for a relaxing weekend. You can use the flowers fresh or dried in a herbal infusion. Or make a softening skin oil by filling a jar with flowers, pouring olive oil on it and leaving it in the sun for a week. Strain and pour into a clean bottle. For a more creamy ointment you can add molten beeswax. Use 30 g per 100 ml oil. . . . . #searchwandercollect #mygarden #gardenlove #inmygarden #jardin #forageandharvest #growyourownfood #organicgardening #forestgarden #forestgardening #sacrednature #permaculture #naturalgarden #locavore #naturetherapy #livewild #wildfood #nature #herbs #herbalmedicine #herbalinfusion #madebynature #hedgerowmedicine #flowersandotherstories

To cultivate a forest garden, you have to let the forest lead and tie your hands behind your back. These gorgeous ground covers will be worth the wait 😊 #howdyshomestead #forestgarden

The Hazelnuts planted 2 years ago are filling nuts. These plants are are quite odd in that pollen is released from the male catkins in bursts across a 4- 6 week period in January - March. The pollen germinates as soon as it reaches a receptive flower but the fertilization process does not take place for another 4-5 months in June. Once fertilized the female flowers develop into nuts very rapidly with 90% growth occurring within 4 - 6 weeks.  Check out our  article The Amazing Hazel - The Essential Guide to Everything you need to know about Hazels for more about these fascinating plants. #permaculture #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #foodforest #forestgarden #ecology Www.thepolycultureproject.com

Evening Sun on the Wild Honeysuckle in the wild garden. I bought three native honeysuckle plants a year or so ago and they really have thrived with no effort required! They're such a delicate looking flower but the plants are so robust, and their fragrance is beautiful, especially in the evening

The flowers in the wee valley below the Stonechat Bothy are at their best now. Common Valerian, Meadowsweet, Marsh Woundwort and Angelica, all beautiful and all great for invertebrates.

Av de bär jag odlar i min skogsträdgård är det hybridblåbär som påverkas mest när det är torr. Det har jag märkt även andra torra år men i år är det extremt. Som jämförelse syns också vita vinbär på bilden. Värt att tänka på när du väljer placering! 🇬🇧Hybrid blueberries are the most affected by drought of all the berries I have in my forest garden. I have noticed this other dry years but the effect this year is extreme. Shown here next to white currants for comparison.

'Hydrangea sargentiana', sometimes seen as a subspecies of 'Hydrangea aspera' hails from the Hubei province in Central China. Both leaf and flower are remarkable on this shrub. Leaves are covered in soft hairs and can reach 10 inches (25 cm) long while it's purple and white heads of flowers reach nearly the same size. I was quite delighted to see it doing so well this year after a slow start. #pnwgarden #gardening #shadegarden #hydrangea #speciesgarden #forestgarden #landscaping #floraofchina Purchased from Forest Farm Nursery in Oregon

A view in the forest garden. We encourage a diverse herb layer in the forest garden during the last 2 weeks of June (the wettest month in our climate). We'll cut 60 -70% of the herbaceous layer down and lift the biomass trees. This material will be used to mulch the productive plants or build new planting beds. The timing is important i.e, before the long dry summers we often experience here. Cutting back the plants not only reduces the competition for water during the dry season but when used as mulch will also prevent evaporation from the soil. #permaculture   #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign   #foodforest #forestgarden #ecology Www.thepolycultureproject.com

Yesterday I cut off a new place in our 'wilderniss' aka pasture. It's the perfect place to rest in the afternoon, sitting under the old appletree, watching the neighbours sheep. Or late in the evening, with a cold glas of wine, watching the sun go down … I let Mr Beetle, our dog, lead me trough the field. He teaches me the natural way to climb up the hill. His paths are not straight, but with gentle curves. The best teacher I can imagine. . . . . #searchwandercollect #mygarden #instagrdeners #gardenlove #inmygarden #jardin #giardino #forageandharvest #growyourownfood #organicgardening #forestgarden #forestgardening #sacrednature #sacredearth #permaculture #naturalgarden #locavore #naturetherapy #livewild #wildfood #nature #landscape #ecology #natureperfect #designwithnature #livingpaintings #paintedbynature #frenchinspired #francelovers #frenchcountryside

Food Security: The condition in which all people have physical, social, and economic access to nutritious food that meets their dietary needs to live a healthy life. (From United Nations Committee on World Food Security) Before having their own Forest Gardens, farmers were struggling to feed their families and in desperate need of help. They were planting maize, which degraded their land, and were selling crops only a couple of times a year, unable to get the nutrition they needed. Since joining the Forest Garden Program their diet has gone from grey and innutritious, grains to colorful and beneficial fruits and vegetables. We have seen in places such as Senegal, that in only 12 months, 82% of farmers were food secure in our program! Thank you for making this possible.
