9. Nowadays I would add Mycor as Smiley's work shows
this works on older
trees, particularly when mixed with fertilizer -
contact Jason Houlihan for
product. (I did not have that advantage back in
1988/89).

Dealga, Could you expand on this a tad, forgive me
but who is Smiley, and has he/she
published his/her research. Are we wise to inoculate
a mature transplant, when it is already stressed
particularly from traumatic root loss, knowing that
Mycorrhizae can initially
demand up to 20% of stored sugars from the host in
order to establish its
hyphal network before it becomes fully symbiotic ? 
How does one test the efficacy of M in situations
such as this when faced with
infinite variables and no controls ?  Anyone ?
