It’s Day Light Savings Time weekend. And with it comes the momentum to hop into Spring with plans for readying the garden soil, planting seeds indoors and designing the garden you want this season.
If you don’t already know about Agro Homeopathy – using homeopathic concepts and medicines to give vitality and health to your plants and soil, now is the time to learn.
This topic was presented by Barbara Bason, homeopathic practitioner, at Homeopathy Delaware’s March 2023 meeting.
Samuel Hahnemann and a few other early homeopaths occasionally made mention of using homeopathic medicines for plants. But not until V. D. Kaviraj contributed to the field of Agro Homeopathy about 20 years ago with the compilation of his enormous amount of useful information in the ground- breaking book, Homeopathy for Farm and Garden, did the world become aware of the benefits and wide -spread potential of homeopathy and homeopathic medicines for plants and agricultural.
This technique is certainly worth trying as it is neither expensive nor time-consuming and will not have an adverse effect on the environment. In fact, the opposite is true – Argo homeopathy strengthens the microbiome of the plant, and the soil as well when appropriately applied to each.
Any living thing – plants, animals, humans, stand to have vitality, endurance and immunity strengthened in a healthy way with Homeopathy. This is in contrast to the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides which ultimately weaken the whole microbiome, leaving the plant vulnerable to the next new environmental problem. Agro Homeopathy concepts and methods can prevent scourges of insect pests, fungi, bacteria and viruses without interfering with the role of each in the food chain and the microbiome.
Let’s look at a few applications of Agro Homeopathy for one of the most often grown garden plants, the Tomato.
This tomato recipe acts as fertilizer, tonic and improves growth, taste while preventing blossom end rot and greenback (K deficiency).
After the last Spring frost:
Water seedlings with 30c Calendula (revitalizing, antibacterial, strengthening).
One week later, start the 3-day treatment.
Day 1: Calcarea carbonica 6x
Day 2: Kali phosphoricum 6x
Day 3: Magnesium phosphoricum 6x
Apply again in one week; once more a week later – total 3 treatments.
Do you know about companion planting? Plants, just like humans and other animals, thrive better when they put down roots near another plant that is compatible or, better yet, near a plant which helps them thrive. The life of the lovely tomato plant is enhanced by having basil as its close friend.
So, we can purchase the homeopathic medicine made from Basil – Ocimum basilicum – dilute it and apply it to the roots (not the leaves, tomatoes do not like wet leaves). Tomatoes treated this way have been shown to be more nutritious (Lycopene and Carotene).
Tomatoes are prone to blight in warm humid weather, succumbing to the disease in as little as a few days. The leaves wither, turn brown and die, the fruits develop hard black areas and do not mature. Natrum sulphuricum 30c is a homeopathic medicine known to increase the vital force of the plant under such weather conditions to help it resist the disease, when it is diluted and applied to the roots.
When there is weather related or mechanical injury plants can be helped with many of the same medicines as humans and pets.
Aconite for trauma from sudden cold weather or other shock.
Arnica for bruising or blunt trauma from transplanting or pruning or other..
Calendula for torn bark, abrasions, pruning, lawn mowers.
The diluted homeopathic medicine Silica 30c can be spooned around the roots of all bushes, trees or other plants in early Spring as a general tonic, as long as the plant is healthy. If there is a health problem, treat as needed with the best homeopathic medicine and see how the plant is doing the following Spring.
These examples are just a few of the endless ways homeopathic remedies can help your plants. Consult one or more of the referenced sources at the end of this blog for more help with finding a remedy for pests such as caterpillars, slugs, aphids, fungi, bacteria, viruses, poor soil and more, including how to use the remedies.
Homeopathy for plants opens up an exciting area of exploration that may yield major benefits for agriculture. Who can say how far reaching this field will be and what boundaries Agro Homeopathy will open up?
