We see the tree planting technique used - and we watch as professional crews apply Root Rescue Transplanter MS-CS during the very hot and dry summer of 2018.
Here's my picture of a beautiful group of Amanita muscaria var. 'guessowii' that I saw last October, in a lawn, beside a windrow of Spruce. And if you look real close - you'll see a fly on this 'Fly Agaric' These may not be good for people (or not, depending on what you get up to on the weekend) - but - they are very good for the roots of their host trees. They are ectomycorrhizal partners of all Pine, Spruce, Fire, Hemlock etc. So if you see them - don't pick them
We now know how important mycorrhizal fungi are to the billions of plants on our planet today. Mycorrhizae form a symbiosis with plant roots - assi...
Root Rescue's Transplanter MS-CS Gives Landscape Plants a Proven Advantage in Drought. University testing results Published in 2015. What the University of Guelph found could save the trees and shrubs that you plant this summer from failing to survive one of the worst droughts that we've seen in years. If you're planting landscapes for a living this summer, can you afford NOT to look at what the U of G research found?
We all know that Green Plants 'breathe in' Carbon Dioxide and convert it to oxygen during photosynthesis. So, one might think that rising CO² levels would mean that the plants around us are all growing faster these days with the increased CO² supply. 'Not quite' a new study in the journal Science explains. It turns out that plants can only take advantage of a rising CO² levels if they have either: an increased soluble nitrogen source, or they have mycorrhizal fungi to work with. And mycorrhizae
Here's the local forecast where I am here at the west end of Lake Ontario. This drought weather pattern leads to the failure of all kinds of landscape plants that garden centres and landscape contractors guarantee. Millions of dollars worth of landscape plants will be planted in Southern Ontario in the next 10 days - will they all succeed? The drought stress relief delivered by Root Rescue's Transplanter gives new plantings a proven advantage.
It’s not much of a stretch to imagine that the way we build our roads, homes, shopping malls and schools is hard on the living microbes in the already fragile topsoil left behind by land speculators. The heavy equipment rumbles onto a long-abandoned, weed-infested field, and the first job is to strip the surface bare of anything that looks darker in colour than the subsoil below. Theoretically, this material has value to the builder – so...
