Here be a selection of plants growing at the moment that are useful ones to know.
Our slow journey of getting to know the plants started with carrying books of plant pictures wherever we went. Soon enough we knew the names and some uses for the more common hedgerow plants, and what had been a dull green swathe of weeds transformed into an abundant,alive,useful and ever exciting new realm to explore.
Once you start looking, and finding whats what, you will begin to relate with the growth around you, how it changes, how it can help you and how you can help it.
We will give uses of these plants in future posts. For further information about them, visit the Plants For A Future database and type the name into the search bar.
