Instead of providing a snapshot for each plant, Harford gives a link to a database of pictures which give a more indepth photography for each plant and a better resource for identification.

I get the feeling the author threw this together quickly to get it published as soon as possible, it's a major downfall because it really shows.

I mean we all know what a dandelion looks like but people might make the fatal mistake of eating a giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) instead of common hogweed (Heraceleum sphondylium) people need to know what they look like! While I have a huge interest in such things and appreciate his efforts, he's not took into consideration that we don't know what the plants he's taking about look like and he's not put this book together in a detailed manner; it's just sort of thrown together. Our Hedgerow Guide aims to help you forage for British plants that are relatively common in the wild, easy to find and good to eat – and to avoid those that are inedible or poisonous. Edible and Medicinal Wild Plants of Britain and Ireland | Covering 48 wild edible and medicinal plants, I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage.

This is a book about plants (some very familiar, some quite rare), which you can eat, but without any illustrations it loses all its value. The author has spent fifteen years experimenting and learning about wild plants and how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves. A flavour profile of each plant lets us know what taste we should expect and a nutritional profile informs us of the nutrients each plant provides. My book covers forty-eight plants and includes multiple colour photographs for easy plant identification. The species mentioned in the book are growing in my surroundings (Cork,Ireland) which makes it practical and simple to use.It just kinda falls flat in the reading experience if you can’t visualise what he is talking about, also not everyone has access and means to be able to download a guide, many households do not have internet access nor computers or laptops to download guides too. He wrote the book to help us rediscover our forgotten plant heritage and how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Its a bit tricky trying to read it while looking at my phone while walking in the countryside looking for things I want to forage, all at the same time without falling over a log. I’ve read many foraging books that have provided comprehensive pictures so that seems a bit of a cop out to me, not even illustrations so at least we could get the gist of what it kind of looks like and then if we do want to attempt finding it in the wild we could reference his guide? This guide is here to help keep you safe, however, please ensure that you use multiple sources for identifying plants.
