Description

This is a fascinating introduction to gardening in its widest sense, setting horticulture in its historical, cultural and cosmological contexts. The author offers both a theoretical understanding of biodynamic gardening and useful tips on light and warmth, ground covers, composts, crop rotation and weeds. The first part of the book is concerned with providing a philosophical and epistemological background to the subject, while the second part deals with the practicalities of horticulture.
