Re: 499

I took "devitalised" to mean that the pure growth impulse of the youthful spring plant has been transmuted into the maturing phase which goes along with a reduction in growth of the plant - a dying process in fact. The quality of the healthy crop is one that is dependent on the early vitality being...

Re: 499

Thanks Mark and Malcolm A few questions and comments to a few passages in Malcolm Gardner’s text to those present here. “Revised version of a lecture at the International Agricultural Conference, Dornach, Switzerland, Feb. 4, 2009” So I reckon I can find Malcoms presentation (albeit unrevised) along...

specificity of ashing?

To stop mice from getting into my house and outbuilding, I ashed skins of three mice on the recommended date last Christmas, which I think was 26 Dec. I scattered the ashes thinly around house and outbuilding. I got rid of all mice in the house directly. In the outbuilding there was a little mouse a...

Re: Seasonal exercise

And who did the appreceating and unappreciating? It could be interesting if you tried several appreciaters separately, giving them a batch of wheat seeds each. No substantial difference then? BTW how many seeds did get each treament? My results Appreciated wheat. 50 germinated. Avg shoot: 16.78 cm (...

Re: ascending-descending cicle from equator

I have some corrections to make, that might make my message in this thread even more difficult to follow. Therefore I asked the moderator to remove my two posts of the 11 and 12 Nov, so I can enter a better and more coherent post. As he hasn't done so, I have no better option than to post some corre...

The nodes related to planting time

Here is something from Maria Thun’s calendars that I don’t understand. In the 2011 and 2012 calendars, the Moon passes its ascending node near the end of planting time, and descending node near the beginning. (Typically there is about one day between these two events.) In the 2008 calendar the moon ...

Useful information found at Considera: http://www.considera.org/pbtsplanttime.html "During this cycle the moon is sometimes higher in the sky and other times lower.

Re: ascending-descending cicle from equator

I assume Brian Keat's suggestion is based on the changes in how high the Moon raises in the sky each day. At the equator there will be two peaks per cycle rather than one. What about close to the equator then? I tried to think about this. The Earth's orbit is tilted 5 deg from the ecliptic, but in w...

Re: Community of Plants?

According to Chris, the tree is similar to a community of plants. More specifically the yearly growth from a bud is a plant. RS says that a tree trunk and a heap of soil rich in organic material are similar (Agcourse lec 4). He expands on this theme in lec 7. I think that what Chris says is by and l...

Hello Mark, cityboy et al. This will be my first post on this forum. One reason this experiment is interesting is that if improved and extended it may perhaps prove an effect of homeopathy. But sofar it is of course way to sketchy to do that. Apart from this I know way too little about agrohomeopath...
