At Life Terra we always aim at improving the quality of our plantings.
This can be done through good preparation of the planting hole and the use of high-quality seedlings. In those cases where high-value trees are employed, such as in food forests, it makes sense to also add soil amendments.
In this windbreak at the Mas Cufí farm (Boadella, Figueres, Catalonia) we applied a mix of compost, coco fiber and perlite. We add a few liters of water to the planting hole so the roots can quickly expand and start absorbing the nutrients. And after planting we put a thick layer of mulch in order to prevent the evaporation of moisture.
