Homeopathic Silica – The gardeners friend! Silica is a mineral known well for its affiliation with healthy skin, hair and bones. The homeopathic remedy has a facinating picture of someone who is stubborn or fixed in their ideas. With both these characteristics in mind you can see why silica is an excellent remedy to use in the garden. Silica can give limp plants structure, can inihbit ‘shock’ when transplanting, aid in fungi and insect immunity, germinate seeds etc. simply buy some of the little pillules from your local health food store and make up a spray using them. Be careful not to over spray, plants are sensitive to everything! My plants got a dose after pruning today. Happy gardening!
