Natural Fertilizers for Citrus Trees Citrus trees are beneficial for gardeners--not only for the delicious harvest, but also for the shade, fragrance and splashes of color they provide. In order to produce top quality citrus fruit, these trees must be fertilized often and heavily with high levels of nitrogen. The most ideal time to fertilize citrus trees in frost free areas is in January, to encourage February blossoming. In areas where frost may occur until March, fertilize the trees after the last frost. Feed one- to two-year old trees every month, and older trees quarterly. Manure Manure not only refers to the fertile excrement that comes from animals after they eat plant matter, but also an addition of other materials mixed with the excrement. Blood Meal As one of the most prized single natural fertilizers available, blood meal, also called dried blood, is known for containing a quickly soluble form of every element that is needed for quality plant growth.

The Suffragettes | Museum of London In 1903 the 'votes for women' campaign was energised by the creation of the Women's Social and Political Union (W.S.P.U). Founded in Manchester by Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters, the W.S.P.U. aimed to 'wake up the nation' to the cause of women's suffrage through 'Deeds not Words'. The decision to relocate the headquarters to London in 1906 transformed the suffrage movement. By taking their campaign to the streets, the Women's Social and Political Union attracted maximum publicity. A London base also provided opportunities for staging spectacular demonstrations. The Coronation of George V in 1911 inspired the W.S.P.U. to organise its own spectacular coronation pageant. The suffragette campaign was masterminded from W.S.P.U. headquarters, initially established at 4 Clement's Inn, Strand and, from 1912, at Lincoln's Inn, Kingsway. The outbreak of the First World War brought an immediate suspension of militancy as the suffragettes threw themselves into supporting the war effort.

National Women's History Project my tree of life grows yarn: Anatomy of a Strapping Young Lad "Strapping young lad." There is nothing like those three words. Indeed, any of these words without the other two are meaningless. The three must combine and blend to form the most perfect of males. Here is Trevor Lewington and Brian Buchanan of Enter the haggis sporting their amiable qualities. Note their adorable and slightly silly smiles. As you can see, the world would be at a loss without fine young men such as these.

Sophie | A Digital Library of Works by German-Speaking Women Internet History Sourcebooks Project Women's History Sourcebook "Yes, I am fond of history." "I wish I were too. I read it a little as a duty, but it tells me nothing that does not either vex or weary me. How are historians to remedy the silence about women in many traditional accounts of history? The first solution was to locate the great women of the past, following the lead of much popular historiography that focuses on "great men". The next solution was to examine and expose the history of oppression of women. In recent years, while not denying the history of oppression, historians have begun to focus on the agency of women. These various approaches to the history of women are not exclusive. This page is a subset of texts derived from the three major online Sourcebooks listed below.

Landesarchiv Berlin Das Helene-Lange-Archiv (HLA) ist nach der Lehrerin, Frauenrechtlerin und Politikerin Helene Lange benannt, deren schriftlicher Nachlass aber nur einen kleinen Teil dieses Archivs ausmacht. Es fasst nämlich mehrere Teilbestände unterschiedlicher Herkunft und unterschiedlichen Umfangs zusammen, darunter Archive von Frauenorganisationen und Nachlässe von einzelnen Frauen, die innerhalb des gemäßigten Flügels der bürgerlichen Frauenbewegung des späten 19. und vor allem des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts eine wichtige Rolle spielten. Geschichte des Helene-Lange-Archivs Hervorgegangen ist das HLA aus der 1911 errichteten Helene-Lange-Stiftung (HLSt), die den Zweck verfolgte, das Studium von Frauen durch die Vergabe von Stipendien an Studentinnen und von Druckkostenzuschüssen für Dissertationen zu fördern. Zwar verlor die Stiftung ihr Vermögen bereits nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg durch die Inflation, bestand jedoch bis 1961 weiter. Bei Fragen wenden Sie sich bitte an: Dr. Zu den Beständen im Einzelnen:
