Mycorrhizal Fungi

Post by ghiro on Mon Dec 08, 2014 4:54 pm

Over the last 8 years we've planted 30-40 olive trees at Casa Ghiro.  Although all but one have survived I'd be pushed to describe their growth as vigorous. Sad 

Talking to a gardening expert t'other day he was telling me that he had planted a number of olives in SW England a few years back using Mycoorhizal Fungi  http://www.rootgrow.co.uk/mycorrhizal-fungi.html and the trees have positively thrived!

A good tip?  Has anyone any experience of using it?

Not as I'm biased or anything (or got any financial gain to be had), but last year we did a large promotion for these guys Carbon Gold who use Mycorrhizal fungi along with carbon and coir and I can honestly say that the product is brill having seen the results. Soil Association approved eco friendly etc etc. that stuff really does work if added to newly planted trees and shrubs.

Nor me neither Flip. Smile   And the good news for the 'worried well' is that it doesn't cause athlete's foot, thrush, ringworm or jock itch!

I was reading about it in a book about fungi and mushrooms and it seems to be wonderful. Here is some information about it and I think that I would give it a try, Ghiro.http://www.organicgardening.com/learn-and-grow/garden-s-homegrown-ally
