We’ve been meeting the Bach Flower Remedy trees growing at Offshoots and the surrounding area, observing how they grow, sharing our impressions of each tree and discussing their uses as Bach Flower Remedies. Come along and meet some of them with us….hornbeam, elm, oak, walnut, beech and sweet chestnut.

Hornbeam flower remedy releases procrastination and brings mental alertness. Very useful if you find it hard to get going in the morning, get tired sitting in front of the computer or feel weary about routine in your life.

Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) looks muscular and sinewy, almost like a human body. The remedy is made from the lemon-coloured catkins that are full of bright vitality.
