"In the late 1940’s and early 1950’s a team from India identified a compound they called pterygospermin. This group was also able to demonstrate its mode of antimicrobial action in the mid 1950’s."



If the Moringa has antimicrobial / antibiotic properties would it not kill bacteria etc in the soil if it is used as a mulch or foliar spray?

To me oaks = truffles. Can't you innoculate the roots of your oaks with truffle spores? Could bring in a pretty penny somewhere down the line....

In one of the pod casts I heard that if you prune a tree some of the roots would die off....I always thought that pruning a plant encouraged root growth...which is correct?

Paul Wheaton advises that trees with tap roots be planted from seed and not from seedling as the tap root will be deformed / stunted.
What does one do in the instance were the fruit tree requires a stronger root stock than that of the natural fruit tree ( i.e. it needs to be grafted ) and one does not have access to the stronger root stock?
Is it better, in this instance, to transplant grafted trees than to grow from seed?
