Understanding the difference between “spreading” and “stemming” in plant growth patterns, is a doorway to the deeper mysteries of how hormones affect plant growth.
This pattern is used to describe a whole system of plant sprays that can be made from natural substances to influence plant growth from root to seed.
Includes *recipes* and experimental results!Read More
Using the alchemical language of sulf, sal, mercury, Dennis describes how certain minerals and hormones that govern plant growth can be seen as growth patterns of deposition and dissolution.
Understanding of these patterns can be used to select what elements to include in a plant spray.Read More
In the growth of medicinal and culinary plants the balance between two fundamental hormonal influences is a valuable key to enhancing both medicinal properties as well as aromatics and flavour in culinary plants. Most plants are apically dominant. That means that the terminal buds on each branch determine the branching and shooting form of the…Read More
Recent research on the relationship between climate change and plant growth has revealed an unusual paradox. It seems that the more CO2 a plant has available in the atmosphere the larger it grows. However this growth is accompanied by a ubiquitous 8% reduction in potassium, calcium, iron, zinc, and plant protein in the cells of…Read More
This easy-to-make plant spray is excellent for boosting plants. It works great to get a second harvest. It’s good used on plants like Lemon Balm or Helichrysum when harvesting for essential oils. By marinating young (1-3in tall) fava bean roots in a fulvic acid/water solution made by soaking/decomposing tree leaves in water, you can produce…Read More
Liposomes can trap both hydrophobic and hydrophilic substances and unstable compounds (for example, antimicrobials, antioxidants, flavors and bioactive elements). Proteins creating transport channels across phospholipid membranes, mitochondrial and chloroplast inner membranes require more proteins for transport. (Egg yolks have proteins as well as lipids. Egg lecithin is useful for production of liposomes it produces more…Read More
In the quartet of phosphorus, potassium, sulfur and magnesium the sal and sulf influences on the life processes of plants can be identified. The phosphorus and potassium issue in NPK thinking revolves around the very attractive nature of phosphorus for other minerals and the strong tendency for potassium to constantly seek combination. Phosphorus with a…Read More
In the inner work of developing your consciousness, there is a stage of development called “etheric vision”. This concept is found in many forms in the work of Rudolf Steiner. To form an idea of this, it is useful to look at the work of Goethe known as phenomenology, or the perception of phenomena. This…Read More
The naturalist D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson, who wrote the classic book On Growth And Form, believed that the outer form of an organism is a diagram of the forces that are active within the organism. He took this idea further by stating that germ plasm is always the seat of forces and never the source of…Read More
Creating safe, sacred spaces in your garden connects you to the long history of the walled garden. Using Leonardo Da Vinci’s Virgin of the Rocks as inspiration, Dennis takes us on a tour of the small sculpture gardens throughout his garden that support his plants and the elemental forces in creating the most healing food…Read More
