The Start of Something Green
In April very beautiful things happen in the garden. Spring is near, and we all feel relieved at the appearance of the first splendid flowers — Adonis vernalis (pheasant’s eye), Primula veris (cowslip), Daphne mezereum (Daphne) and many others. The greenhouses are now full of young plants. Soon they’ll be in the garden, strong and healthy. We prepare the fields using several types of machinery. But just as important is the unique Biodynamic® application of the manure preparation. For the mixture to reach the right quality and property, the manure must be stirred in water for an hour.  Then we spray it on the fields to support their fertility. We...

The Time for Nature to Awaken
March always feels like an in-between month, not winter but not yet spring. The days are gray and cold, and the trees are still bare. But you can sense that nature soon will burst forth. Already the birds tell us so with their songs. In March the gardeners return from winter break, full of hope for a good season with all growing factors in harmony. Here in the medicinal garden it’s the month for root harvesting. The soil remains wet and cold, while the plants’ exposed parts bear traces of the long winter. It’s difficult to imagine that strong, beautiful plants will emerge in a few weeks. But when you take the root, brush off any soil and look...
