Reviews of this book
PLANT SPIRIT GARDENER by Alanna Moore
“What a fascinating book. Whether you are interested in gardening or not, you will be hooked by this manuscript and the wealth of information Alanna Moore is sharing with us. Using her extensive understanding and experience Alanna draws you into her world and then encourages you to find your own way using her plethora of charts, dowsing lists and your pendulum!
“From folklore to meditation; communicating with fairies and tree spirits; right through to therapeutic gardening and healing plants with Dr Bach’s Rescue Remedy – it is all here. On the other side of the coin there is scientific research providing further insights and opinions. All of this is packaged in Alanna’s straightforward and easy prose – a delightful and informative read.

Review in Nexus magazine Feb-March 2017:
“What a delightful read! … it has transformed my relationship with my garden and has me looking at trees in a totally different way. … Alanna’s book is not only fascinating and filled with practical advice, but it is inspiring as well…. filled with simple but effective techniques for connecting and working with the tree and plant spirits…. More than gardening, the information in this book relates to all plant species—so it is perfect for people who love to get out in nature…with Alanna’s clear instructions, you will take ‘communing with nature’ to a whole new level. Alanna has packed so much into this wonderful book, and I highly recommend it. If you didn’t love plants when you started reading, you will by the end.”
