Erbe, arbusti, alberi per il corpo e lo spirito
Erbe, arbusti, alberi per il corpo e lo spirito - Giancarlo Fantini
Decades of experience in the field and teaching have allowed the author to write a manual that brings together the wisdom of experience, the skills of the teacher, the curiosity of the experimenter and the sensitivity of the artist.
With his book Giancarlo Fantini (painter gardener) takes us into the world of plants, helps us to understand their life, needs and what the purpose of their existence is. His great experience gives us the necessary knowledge to give the best to our plants and therefore get the best from them.
So not a simple guide, but a story that accompanies us in this fascinating and ancient world that has created the conditions for the development of animal life and therefore of man.
Getting to know the plant world has never been so interesting and compelling.
