If any of you fellow Scandinavians are planning a food forest, I have started one here on Sjælland, and I am documenting the species that work, with notes and discussions of each.

You can download the whole thing for free from my website: biodiverseed.com

Inventory of plants: here

The profiles look like this:

All of the plants I have in the inventory / plant profiles can successfully grow in Denmark. I am up at about 60 plants now in terms of documenting the edible trees and shrubs that work here.

The Trifoliate orange card was just an example, I have many others profiled in the downloadable PDF file.

Thanks alot for this!

A bit off topic but you know how I could get hold of some seeds for Arctic Beauty and Hardy Kiwi seeds in this part of the world?
