Mrs. Denneler’s Garden

A Gardener Reveals Her Green Secrets

A wonderful abundance of flowers with little work: it is just a small plot of ground in the middle of a meadow, and yet visitors stand before a little paradise, astonished. From March to October flowers grow, vegetables and herbs grow, birds and butterflies flit through the air.

“How on earth did you do it?” Irmgard Denneler is often asked. The answer is a combination of traditional gardening knowledge and patient observation of nature: how to get along without artificial fertilizers and pesticides, how to keep the soil covered, the best way to support weak stalks, which butterflies need a little help reproducing, which plants make good combinations or should be planted in succession, which old types of vegetables thrive best …

You will learn a lot by accompanying Irmgard Denneler in her garden for a year, above all to love and care for nature.
