Anne Stobart wrote:Hi, I wrote the Medicinal Forest Garden Handbook so can tell you that the Part 2 Directory part does include profiles of trees and shrubs fitting into a range of USDA zones 2-8. When selecting examples I focused on plants that I know well from UK and USA experience. However, please note that this is a selection of the many many species of medicinal plants so will not provide you with an ultimate list of medicinal plants that you can grow. Rather the focus of Part 1 is on design, establishment, cultivation, harvesting, storage and use/sale of medicinal plants including trees and shrubs. You can see the Directory listing if you 'look inside' on Amazon.com. If you want a lengthy listing based on a search for zone and purpose then I recommend the Plants For A Future database at https://pfaf.org/user/Default.aspx The book is aimed at people who are keen to grow herbal medicine permaculture style and/or may have an interest in developing as smallscale business, hope this helps, Best wishes, Anne
