Dr Bach’s Centaury is a pioneer

Last year’s seedling is now growing up fast though it is still inconspicuous among the stones. In this deserted quarry it is one of the first plants to colonise the wasteland – Centaury is a courageous pioneer. Something here of the positive remedy state: brave and outgoing. Everywhere the tiny pairs of leaves show that the next generation has already germinated. But it will be 12 months before they reach the size of the first picture.
