Garden secrets of the great plant connoisseurIf you understand your garden and grasp its superior order, you will experience fulfilment and you will also achieve a richer harvest. In his book about the garden's microcosm Wolf-Dieter Storl shows us how to get there. A comprehensive, holistic nature and garden encyclopaedia that examines not only planetary influences but also soil bacteria and fertilizing substances. Storl's knowledge-base comprises the findings of the Rosicrucians and Neoplatonists, the experiences of native Americans and Chinese healers as well as the wisdom of Paracelsus and Agrippa von Nettesheim. Apart from that, the renowned self-supporter offers practical hints, guidance, and advice for any type of garden work throughout the year, based on his organic gardening expertise. The influence of the weather, the right method of composting, ideal plant neighbours and crop rotation, the coexistence of insects and small animals, and the proper handling of seeds – Wolf-Dieter Storl shares with us small and big secrets for a lively natural garden.Wolf-Dieter Storl: Cultural anthropologist and ethno-botanist.
