Roots come in all shorts of shapes and sizes but are all designed to help the plant grow and remain healthy. To achieve that the roots themselves need to remain in peak condition and this is where the gardener can help. Start with the right hole in the right place and understand what and why you are doing something.
Unhealthy Root Causes
- Fine hairy roots can be burnt by the application of the wrong or too much fertiliser.
- Roots that are in waterlogged soil start to rot.
