Mein Garten im Wandel des Zeitgeistes und des Klimas / My Garden throughout the Changes of general Attitudes and of Climate (Book only available in German language)
Gardens are constantly undergoing changes, expecially due to seasonal alterations. But future confronts us with further questions: How can we deal with increasing global warming? Can we do more to help insects survive? What if the groundwater level keeps falling or if there will be a growing shortage of water? How can I tend my garden in such a way that I will be able to do it, even when I get older? Will my garden, as it is, still look beautiful when it continues developing? And how are we supposed to assess, handle and prepare for the multiple and complex transformation processes in a garden?
The specialist for plants, garden designer and bestselling author, Peter Janke, is convinced, that the answers to these questions must derive from our own gardens and their compositions. Peter Janke is one of the most popular garden designers and belongs to the few ones gaining major international attention. In the course of his lectures, publications and his guided garden tours he has been pointing out for decades new approaches as to rethinking garden design – personally worked out and practically experienced with his constantly changing large garden paradise comprising 14.000 m² in the west of Germany. This book describes the experienced gardening practice, with focus on the urgent request for the necessary change. With visually impressive pictures by Jürgen Becker, who has photographed the development of the garden for many years now, Peter Janke presents in this book well-founded solutions for future-proof adaption and care of your own garden, summarized in well-arranged month by month care guides.
