Fascinating!, 24 May 2013
I used to buy this book every year when I lived in Brittany and was delighted to find that it was now available in English. It is packed with facts, both astrological, horticultural and much more (compost, homemade fertilizers, planting calendar, companion planting, on and on. . .). You can follow it as fastidiously as you feel appropriate and it certainly helps to keep me on my toes as regards getting things in on time! An awful lot depends on the weather of course, but an experiment was done recently with planting potatoes (Gardeners Question Time on Radio 4, 12th May I think) and the ones planted on a root date came up before those which were planted before them on a less 'favourable' date. An interesting book for all gardeners whether or not they believe in astrology.
