Micorrhizal powder and how to use it
I live in Cyprus, where there is a water shortage. I recently moved to a village in the mountains, not too high, and now have a virgin garden, untended for years. It had a few damson trees and a plum tree, more like saplings because of undernourishment. I got rid of them and planted a lemon, apricot, mandarin and mulberry tree about 6 weeks to 2 months ago. I then ordered two roses from David Austin, of a type that tolerates poor soil. Incidentally, I also had 20 tons of a mixture of sand, sheep manure and soil spread over the garden. The people who did this also planted the new trees, which I had to dig up and plant again as the holes they made were only just as big as the pots they came in. My question is: I now have 300g of micorhizzal powder. Could I dig the trees up again and give a dose of this to their roots? The weather is getting colder and so things are beginning to sleep ... I think it would be ok, particularly at this time of year. It gets really cold at the end of December, Jan and Feb and even March ... what do you think? It is the first time I have thought of using this in a country that suffers perennially from drought. Sorry this is so long.
