About the Author

"Martin is a true pioneer and his work deserves respect and celebration." - Permaculture Magazine

"Martin Crawford is a frontiersman, a pioneering teacher and an inspiration. Both his work and his garden are national treasures." - Chris Nichols, Director of the Ashridge MSc in Sustainability and Responsibility.

Martin Crawford is a garden writer and founder of the Agroforestry Research Trust. He teaches courses on Forest Gardening and Growing Nut Crops. His book Creating a Forest Garden - is considered the forest gardening `bible' and his How to Grow Perennial Vegetables, is highly popular among practical gardeners.


Martin Crawford is a one-man wonder! In this grand and beautiful book on nut culture he has assembled decades of practical insight to help gardeners and orchardists grow `bread from trees.' From planting to harvesting, selection to storage, and pruning to pest control, you'll find the answers here. Complete with a thorough and lovingly illustrated guide to 19 species of nuts for the temperate world, this book sets a new standard for a vital but little-known field. If we must transform our agriculture to build soil and store carbon, then nut trees belong in all our futures.-Peter Bane, author of The Permaculture Handbook

How to Grow Your Own Nuts is the best guide I've seen to home and small-farm nut growing for the temperate climates, featuring species selection, cultivating, harvest, and processing. It includes many lesser-known species alongside standards like walnut, chestnut, and hazel. This is an essential guide to production of these perennial staple crops. Eric Toensmeier, permaculturist, author and Yale University lecturer A beautifully presented, clear, comprehensive bible from the man who knows more than anyone about growing nuts in the UK. Full of inspiration and information. It's a great book. - Mark Diacono, gardener, food writer and broadcaster
All who have room for a tree should grow nuts - serious nutrition with huge gastronomic potential. In yet another beautiful book, one of our most accomplished forest gardeners shows how. Colin Tudge, biologist, science writer and broadcaster, founder of The Campaign for Real Farming
