"Weeds are weeds only from our human egotistical point of view, because they grow where we do not want them. In nature, however, they play an important and interesting role.” Thus begins this classic text written by a pioneer in the field of sustainable agriculture who, through his work with Rudolf Steiner and a lifetime of research, wielded a vast knowledge of plant and animal biology.
Ehrenfried Pfeiffer discusses the different varieties of weeds, how they grow and what they can tell us about soil health. The process of combatting weeds is discussed in principle as well as in practice, so that it can be applied to any situation.
This important book was written in the 1950s, yet no other book contains the overview that Dr Pfeiffer presents here, and the message contained lives on, as important now as it was over 40 years ago. Weeds and What They Tell Us is a classic that belongs on the bookshelf of every student of the soil.
