A forest garden is a food-producing garden, based on the model of a natural woodland or forest. It is made up of fruit and nut trees, fruit bushes, perennial vegetables and herbs.

A close copy of a natural ecosystem, it is perhaps the most ecologically friendly way of gardening open to us, as well as being a low-maintenance option.
