"[Stevens'] advice is plentiful . . and her] horticultural degree underscore the science of her work."--Booklist

Gardeners, spring is coming, and so is the planting season! If you haven't already planned your garden out for the growing season, now is the time to do your prep work. Author and gardener Jane Hawley Stevens comes to share her new book, The Celestial Garden, Growing Herbs, Vegetables, and Flowers According to the Moon and the Zodiac, full of insight, ideas, and inspiration in a highly practical guide to growing successfully in harmony with the moon, the Earth, and other planetary influences.

Planting by the moon is an age-old gardening tradition, but did you know that the cycles of the moon and the zodiac can be a powerful tool to improve your success with all kinds of gardening tasks? In The Celestial Garden, longtime gardener and herbalist Jane Hawley Stevens explains how the movement of the moon through the constellations of the zodiac provides a detailed calendar of optimal times for planting seeds, roots, and transplants, as well as for pruning, weeding, propagation, harvesting, and even starting new garden projects or throwing garden parties. While herbs are Stevens’s specialty, she loves growing all kinds of plants, and The Celestial Garden provides excellent gardening tips for every gardener, whether their passion is for vegetables, fruits, herbs, or flowers. At a deeper level, Stevens believes that gardening by the moon and learning about astrological cycles can help restore our elemental interconnection with Nature and the Earth.
