"thanks Peter. So it sounds like I can start them and 1) they would thrive but not fix nitrogen 2)  the bacteria Alders host is so widespread it is likely to be in any wet-ish habitat even if recently disturbed 3) I could find some Alders and…"

Are there opinions out there about whether the root systems will be better off in fabric grow bags?We were wondering if if is better to have a wider pot to encourage superficial root growth or…See More
