the wood must be of good origin, organic, and yes many types of wood...
Isn't all wood "organic"?

Conifers and willow no good. Apple and oak good.
And wood must be DRY!

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

u live in city? nope, lots of fake woods out there, knock on wood and look at the wood, and make sure to smell the wood before buying it...  also many use non-organic fertilizers, spray their forest with chemicals etc...there is yes also organic wood and non-organic.

"Apple and oak good." yes good stuff! well i have at least 7 types of apple trees here, not all apple wood is the same.

Bursera Graveolens: Holy Wood  is also a good alternative, preferably organic holy wood, at least for easter!

Nice! I am (was, whatever) a big Smokie fan. One is reminded of the old question of “how do you make holy water?” Answer: take regular water and boil the hell out of it!

They used to play  that song on the DFDS boat from Ijmuiden to Newcastle. At a certain stage the audience would join in to the refrain "Who the **** is Alice?"
The song has been discontinued.

If I plant my biodynamic fruit and vegetable garden on a land near London, but I can't be there every day to watch them grow, do you think the neighbours will nibble on my tomatoes?

Weed and slug in biodynamic tomatoes? You don't know much about farming in reality, do you ;-)

City folk have wunderful ideas. So hard to find a shrubber these days.

Those nouveau rurals think that they can move in the countryside and they automatically become hardened farmers. Just plant the tomatoes next to asparagus and several herbs.
