Hi, I have been lurking on the forum for a few years and just joined.

I'm from Australia and I'm trying to find carob inoculant. I found an old thread where someone mentioned that it is/was available in Australia, but I cannot find any suppliers by searching the net.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Hello, welcome to the team Chris!

I have no experience in this, and am posting so that your thread gets a "bump."

Is there any way to find a thriving tree near you and digging some roots/soil without harming the tree?  Then you could blend the roots, make a "tea" and inoculate with that, similar to a mushroom slurry?

Hi, Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I do not know of any healthy trees that have proven bacteria. They seem to go ok without anything, but if they are not fixing nitrogen that really limits their potential, especially in the very poor soils I'm growing them in. I have called a few places, but still a few wholesale nurseries that I will try calling if I cannot find a source online. I prefer not to harass busy people who I do not buy products from if possible.
