      Nice one thanks Gaardenier,

      I am a successful forest garden nursery plant grower from cuttings and seeds and I never knew that about the poor soil.
      I have a great deal of success with growing thousands of plants.

      Your information about the soil is very very much appreciated.

      Frank.
