Inspiring, enlightening and also very practical; Gardening with The Moon & Stars explains what could be a complicated subject, biodynamic gardening, in terms everyone can understand and put into action. Author Elen Sentier explains how biodynamics is easy. You don’t even have to make all the preparations (although you can if you want to and there is a chapter on how to do this) but can buy them and the star calendar accessibly and affordably. There are also useful points on many garden essentials such as crop rotation, how to make great compost and how to deal with pests and diseases.
Elen Sentier’s enthusiasm and knowledge shines through Gardening with The Moon & Stars. She is a member of the Biodynamic Association and together with her husband has been gardening biodynamically since 1990. Her beautiful fruit, vegetable and flower garden is Demeter certified and she built medal winning gardens at the Royal Horticultural Show in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
A ‘beginner gardener’ myself, I would highly recommend Gardening with The Moon & Stars for anyone wanting to work in harmony with their garden, of whatever size.
