The Real Roots Story

This presentation illustrates the way roots really grow, revealing amazing facts such as these: some vegetable roots grow deeper than some tree roots; roots will grow away from infertile or tainted soil even if it means turning around and growing back upward; a plant's root mass often grows up to three times wider than its foliage canopy. Kourik roots out many commonly held false notions about these essential subterranean penetrators, exposing 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 these much-abused underground friends. Kourik’s workshop will share important details about raising better trees and shrubs and growing abundant fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
