I really liked this book. It is breif yet inormative. However the ONLY downside was the section on recipes. I dont really care about your hippy recipe for "kale infused seed and weed salad'. The book was too short and alot of the writing about how the weeds taste and best ways to cook them where a waste of space. There was not much on the medicinal qualities of foraged weeds and i would have liked a section on edible fungi. HAVING SAID THAT, i still enjoyed the breif look at the most common edible weeds and i dont regret buying it or reading it. You can get through the entire book on one crowded commute to work and by the end of it spot enough edible weeds at the next platform for a three course meal, so i guess its still a valuable book. I give it 4 slightly trodden on edible weeds out of 5.

Canberra

true

Great that this is actually an Australian book.

I've not had time yet to do more than a quick flip. It certainly looks easy to read with an interesting history and uses for each plant which is easily identified by the great photos.

This book is so helpful in the garden! We have a lot of weeds that are actually edible, which surprised me! One of my friends recommended it, as we were camping and she was giving us a bit of education on a weed. Anyway, I'm happy with my purchase. I do think I need to find a book on 'search and destroy' for weeds though, so I can reference both and be a little more confident with the identification process. Also I was happy with services provided by Booktopia.
