Hi, I'm Robin Harford, bestselling author and one of BBC Countryfile's top recommended foraging teachers.

My book Forage in Summer celebrates the top fifteen edible and medicinal wild plants found in June, July and August.

It’s a comprehensive exploration of their past and present uses as food and medicine.

An invaluable addition to any forager, herbalist, gardener, horticulturist or naturalist’s library. It provides plant-lovers with a much-needed resource for understanding nature’s most useful wild plants.

Inside, you’ll discover the forgotten story of Bramble (Blackberry), Burdock, Chickweed, Elder, Fat Hen, Glasswort (Samphire), Lime (Linden), Mallow, Meadowsweet, Mugwort, Oxeye Daisy, Rosebay Willowherb, Sea Aster, Selfheal and Yarrow.

Format: PDF and Kindle

Vital for foragers. An excellent guide for both novices and ancient experienced foragers like me. Heartily recommended. – BW Consultancy

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

I’ve spent countless hours digging through scientific papers and reading hundreds of books.

I even went 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.

I have written 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.

I hope you enjoy it.
