Thanks Jimmy and Lori. I will look up your references. I agree that deer also need to eat and heed your advice. Never heard of American currents but will now look them up.

Seed Savers Exchange is great for heritage heirloom seeds and plants,They have preserved thousands of varieties over the years from extinction by the likes of Monsanto & Co.

Hi everyone, I am new to this group, but have been busy creating planting beds. I would like some help in knowing where to buy seeds/plants in general.  I am also wondering what to do as here in Virginia we have many deer and would like to plant (some will have to be in containers though) many things.  Herbs are not a problem though as deer don't like them.  Any and all help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I have 20 grafted persimmons of different varieties to plant,one of my favourite fruits,especially the astringent types when they go mushy and super sweet....amazing,the equal of any tropical fruit.

Do you get frost there in winter?

Ishia?,never heard of that one only the yellow Ishica

Hello Lekoma.

Stella Natura is great,as you say it uses different constellation boundaries based on indications given by Elizabeth Vreede, Rudolf Steiner,the Ancients,Maria Thuns research and observing the animal forms depicted by the fixed stars that make up the zodiac constellations.Its recommended to use it alongside the Astro Calender for a broader perspective on things.

Despite this where the actual boundaries of the constellations begin and end is an ongoing debate,hence the emphasis toward planting toward the middle of the constellation rather than at the boundaries.

Unfortunately,a southern hemisphere version is not available but those with a basic understanding of astronomy can adapt it,and also the planetary positions in the signs and aspects are the same regardless of ones hemisphere abode,of course one must do a time conversion to ones local time.
