There is an unremarkable industrial unit in Constance Germany. The wood
pellet boiler is of interest and there are some seed trays outside
which look as if someone is caring for them.
But inside there is something very remarkable. It is to here that Konrad
and Rolf Würthle have had to move as their business requires them to
move to larger premises yet again. Originally herbal
pharmacists, their work is now dominated by the results of research
they began in the 1980s in response to the dying forests suffering
under the acid rain. You will not be surprised to hear that they mainly
make homoeopathically potentised remedies for plants. The range is
currently only about half a dozen formulations. There is a general tonic,
another one for roses, one for mildews and fungae, one for water and
a few more.
Like the preparations of BdMax, most of remedies are sold to standard businesses
who buy them because they work! These businesses are rarely
organic let alone biodynamic but still these homoeopathic remedies do
what they claim.
In Germany the legislation allows such 'soft' treatment to proceed as long
as the ingredients are listed and the products registered. We hope for harmonisation to allow for this in other countries in the EU.
