Dynamic accumulators

Hi everyone,

I am behind the curve on growing my own dynamic accumulators like comfrey, dandelion, horsetail, nettle and yarrow, etc, so I am having to source these as dried plants. My question is, should I get these cut and sifted or powdered? Is there a discernible difference? I intend to mix in to the soil, so i'm thinking that powdered would be most effective. Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks!


BD calendars

Many years ago, I used the Stella Natura calendar. It was not available locally so I got the Maria Thun BD Calendar by Matthias Thun. While it has some interesting articles, I wonder whether Stella Natura still looks more like a monthly calendar and whether practitioners have any preference. Thanks for any feedback.
