So many of us live in cities we have lost most of our ability to tune into nature and live according to the rhythms of the Earth. Gardeners are more likely to understand certain aspects, such as when to plant and harvest, but there is much more to know. Every type of plant is affected differently by the moon’s position, particularly the four vegetable groups of root, leaf, flower and seed/fruit. After an introduction to planting, green manure and garden design, this book becomes a diary offering suggestions for every day of the year. Tables to calculate weather influences and individual crop patterns make this a useful almanac for any serious gardener.
