The Real Root Story

WE'RE SORRY - THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELLED

This presentation illustrates how roots really grow, revealing amazing facts, such as that some vegetable roots grow deeper than some tree roots, or that roots will grow away from infertile or tainted soil even if it means turning around and growing back upward, or that a plant's root mass often grows up to three times wider than its foliage. Kourik then proceeds to root out many commonly held false notions about these essential subterranean penetrators, revealing numerous common growing practices that are gravely in error in their use of water, fertilizer, mulch, and planting techniques. He will demonstrate the kindest and most productive way to treat plant roots, our much-abused underground friends.
