I have had a great increase
in growth since I have started using Organic Alfalfa (a dietary
supplement. I have not run a scientific study so I can't be sure how much the
alfalfa has helped. I soak two 500mg tablets to allow them to dissolve before
adding Peter's fertilizer. Then I just water away!!
I started using alfalfa after
reading "Alfalfa and Triacontanol as a Plant Stimulant" - (from a
lecture by D. L. Hinerman,M.D.) in the 1996-1997 Van Wade catalog. The article
was originally submitted to the Great Lakes Regional Editor by Clarence Owens of
Jackson, Michigan. Many benefits are listed including doubling of weights of
plants and up to 3 years growth in one growing season.
Has anybody else tried
this and what have been the results?
