The Rhizosphere Forest Layer

Within the rhizosphere, or root zone of a forest garden, we can find a range of roots, corms, rhizomes, and tubers that are edible, or which have a range of other uses. These plants of the root layer remind us that root forms are very important to forest garden design, and also that we need to delve deeper to see what is really going on in a food forest ecosystem.
