Whilst I've written this book specifically for those foraging in New Zealand, and all of these plants are found abundantly in NZ, they're also abundantly found in Australia, Europe, North America and many other temperate regions. All of the mentioned 'weeds' were introduced into NZ by the Europeans, so have come at some point in their history via Europe.

I was kindly given this ebook by my daughter who is keen to get me into foraging. Wow - it has started to open my eyes to all the edible weeds that are literally just sitting there waiting to be harvested! Felicity, the writer is incredibly knowledgeable and explains the basics of foraging in an easy to understand way. She gives you useful info on the medicinal and nutritional benefits of each of the weeds (plus some great folk history.) I loved all the tips regarding recipies and how to use the foraged weeds. I never knew that you could make Dandelion Root Coffee! I'm going to try that! Beautifully illustrated too!
I was sent the book as a gift and was blown away. The photography is beautiful and ensures you can identify all plants correctly without error. Until now I had no idea you could eat every part of dandelion and even fry the buds in batter! So interesting learning little bits of folklore and history that interwoven into the guide. With so many flus and colds sweeping Melbourne, I can't wait to combat them with the gypsy tea recipe. It's written in such a humble informative way that anyone could digest the information inside. Highly highly recommend as a gift for a loved one. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for the next edition :)
I have always wanted to take my knowledge about edibles a bit further but identification of some can be challenging if you are “not quite sure”... This was a very easy process – downloaded beautifully, the pics are stunning and your thoughts and info are awesome for each plant. No way anybody could not identify the plant correctly with this as a guide. I love this and I am eagerly awaiting the next one. Thanks so much.
I got this book as a gift and it couldn't be more perfect. Simple to read, very useful, nice pics and gives you a glimms of the history on the topic. The tittle says it's for summer time, but here in the PNW I can start finding some plants in my surroandings since early spring. I can't wait to try the recipes, they all sound delicious... and healthy!
