49 Tuning in to nature Apogee and perigee Understanding how close or far the moon and Earth are from each other is useful when timing key garden tasks, such as sowing, planting, harvesting, and pruning. Apogee When the moon is at its farthest point from Earth, or apogee, a summer mood reigns. The moon’s influence on tides is at its weakest at apogee, and so are its watery influences. For this reason, apogee is the best time to sow potatoes for a good yield that stores well. Other root or leaf crops, like carrots or spinach, sown at apogee, risk growing too quickly and running to seed because the watery influences are at their weakest.

To make mint tea add 4oz (100g) of roughly torn or chopped mint to 13 ⁄4 pints (1 liter) of water. Either bring the water slowly and gently to a boil and then turn off the heat, or pour just-boiled water over the mint to avoid scalding the leaves. Let it cool overnight. Filter, and then spray without diluting. • For liquid manure Soak 4oz (100g) of roughly torn or chopped mint leaves in 13 ⁄4 pints (1 liter) of tepid water. Leave outside for 3–4 days. Dilute 1 part mint in 4 parts water. • Use mint to enhance other plant teas —its antioxidant properties mean the beneficial effects the teas have will linger for longer.

The bowls allow the water to move in the same direction at differing speeds and form shapes as if it were eddying and flowing over pebbles in a stream. The bowls can also produce figure-eight shapes that resemble the way blood flows in living organisms. The rhythmical, oxygenating effects of flowforms enhance the water’s vitality, and the sight and sound of water in a flowform is known to have therapeutic effects. Plant teas and liquid manures also benefit from a 10–20 minute stir. The aeration helps them to stick better, and makes it easier for plants and the soil to absorb the nutrients in the liquid.
