Biodynamic techniques recognize that plant life is intimately bound up with the life of the soil; that the soil itself is alive and vital; and that the degree of vitality has a direct bearing on the health of the crops. Through the nurture and care of the soil you will soon be able to grow quality produce which possesses vitality and has a full flavour. Sharing its principles, methods and techniques with organic farming, biodynamic agriculture additionally acknowledges that the plant's growth is also affected by planetary influences like the waxing and waning of the moon. Whether you are an experienced gardener or not, whether or not you have used permaculture or grown organic produce before, this volume offers tips on: favourable times for planting, harvesting and growing; ways of combating pests and diseases; building soil fertility - crop change and rotation; and how planets and stars affect plant growth.
