is a method of helping plants to absorb particular metals in order that
they can be taken as remedies in Anthroposophical Medicine. Initially
minerals are added to plants by being mixed in with the fertilised soil.
Then those plants are composted and used to fertilise a second crop. In
turn this crop is composted to fertilise the third crop. This third crop
produces the vegetabilised metal included in the remedies. These
include gold through primrose, copper through camomile, and lead through
aconite. In Biodynamic Agriculture Plant harvesting is done in spring
rather than autumn. Autumn harvesting is more appropriate for harvesting
plants intended to have a catabolic effect.
