|Frosty Fallowness in January|
Pruning and Winter Light
January into February is about cutting back old wood. Nevertheless, wings of light unfold, if you let them, and carry you through quiet fallowness.
Although we are into the fallow period and do almost no Biodynamic spraying this month and into next (Crystallization Period), we make two exceptions: if we have a particularly wet period too close to pruning, we spray 501 as soon as possible to bring in the winter light and drying. And when if it is too cold and freezing, we spray valerian on the lavender, rose geranium, and the helichrysum to bring the protection of the warm forces.
