In Christmas season, holly is a mandatory decoration in every home! Often used in Christmas decorations, holly symbolizes hope and love among everyone. Its use originated in Europe, in pre-christian paganism. For the druids, holly was considered sacred, and the celts considered it a symbol of firmness. In ancient Rome, it was said that holly had magic powers, largely through the use of its white flowers. Holly was also know in some European countries as the tree of the satyrs, often used to caste away evil spirits. Medieval monks also used it to scare off perverse spirits. Having a holly tree planted on one’s property was guaranteed protection against spells and the evil eye. In certain regions of Germany, holly was used to clean the house chimney and also as a plant useful to remove evil spirits from the home. The English, besides using it as a Christmas decoration, also used its wood to make kettle handles. Tradition also says that when a couple meets underneath a mistletoe branch they should kiss, because it will be a sign of commitment, happiness and long life… Merry Christmas.
pH: Symbol to express the level of acidity, on a scale of 0 to 15, in which 7 represents neutrality (equilibrium between acid and alkaline). Values higher than 7 represent increasing alkalinity, and below increasing acidity. To have an idea, vinegar has a pH around 3 and sodium bicarbonate a pH around 8. Ornamental plants usually require a pH between 6 and 7.5 (each unit of Ph represents an acidity or alkalinity 10 times greater: a soil with pH 5 is ten times more acid that a soil with pH 6; a soil with pH 8 is 10 times more alkaline that a soil with pH 7).
