Hi everybody

Can anybody tell me if Acacia Karroo needs to be inoculated when grown from seed? Or do they have nitrogen fixing nodules naturally?

If I need to inoculate the seed, what rhizobium / inoculant must I use and where can I get it?

Thanks

Managed to find this product that we have applied to the Acacias that we have planted on the Southern border of our test permaculture site. http://www.biocult.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=93&Itemid=58
 
You didn't tell me he was so big. Unlike this tiny ad:
