Influence of field-grow fabric containers and various soil amendments on the growth of green ash
J. Environ. Hort. 10 (4): 218-221
The influence of field-grow fabric containers (FGFC) and soil amendments (hydrophilic gel, peat and slow release fertilizer) on green ash height and caliper were studied for two years. Green ash seedlings were grown in 30.5 cm (12 in) FGFC or without root restriction throughout the study period. Heights and calipers increased less in plants grown with FGFC than in those without the containers during both growing season. Soil amendments had little effect on plant growth throughout the study period.
