Description

As Earth’s neighbor, the moon affects not only ocean tides but also the growth and development of plants. In this finely illustrated, full-color book—packed with practical tips for the novice as well as the advanced gardener—Peter Berg offers a clear summary of the basics of lunar and biodynamic gardening, together with in-depth chapters.

Building on the intensive research of his mentor Maria Thun and the teachings of Rudolf Steiner, Berg explains how the subtle influences from the cosmos work on the plant world, describing the differences among and the significance of “root,” “leaf,” “blossom,” and “fruit” days in the working calendar. Understanding these natural processes and the practical knowledge described in this book can lead to productive, chemical-free gardening, healthy plants, and abundant harvests.

This book is a translation of Der Mondgärtner. Biodynamisch gärtnern mit Peter Berg.
