The information and facts to this contribution come to a large extent from the booklet 1/21 nature & garden "climatic change, climatic crisis, climatic disaster", whose publisher is the nature garden registered association. Author of the booklet is the biologist Ulrike Aufderheide, and as Dr. Reinhard Witt, likewise biologist and president of the nature garden registered association in the preface of the booklet notes, the booklet is a masterly synopsis of the complex facts of this acute topic. Prepared in such a way that even non-scientists can understand it, and yet not simplified to such an extent that it only scratches the surface.

Loosely based on Albert Einstein, "You have to make things as simple as possible. But not simpler."

The best thing is, you read the whole booklet in the original, then you really know! :) Where you can get it, you will find below in the literature tips.

One thing is for sure, we have witnessed this in the drought summers of recent years: The principle of conventional garden management fails completely in times of climate crisis. If we do not support our gardens with elaborate irrigation systems remains not much more than dusty desert.


It's easy to think: it's the more naturalistic, and more importantly, sustainable answer to select plants that are naturally relatively drought resistant than to come up with elaborate irrigation systems for drought-prone species.

So much for introductory words - now it's time to get specific. What can we actually do in our gardens when it comes to counteracting development?
