Online resources for forest gardening

The Agroforestry Research Trust is a great resource for plants and information on forest gardening, based in the south west of England.

Plants for a Future is an online database with details on the cultivation and use of thousands of plant species.

The RHS Plant Finder helps you find the species you need, with details of both Scottish and UK nurseries.

Further information and discussion

Reforesting Scotland and the Permaculture Association both promote forest gardening.

There are a number of Facebook groups dedicated to forest gardening or permaculture, including Permaculture Scotland, Forest Garden UK and Permaculture UK.

      Hi Jane. Thanks for asking. I’m already a member of the Loomio group, but seeing as I’m so far from its centre of gravity and as I have quite a few other plates spinning already, I haven’t been an active member so far.
