Also I wet the naner corm and roots and dust with mychorrizae powder.

I fill and tamp to set the top of the corm an inch or 2 higher than soil level. Finish fill in and topdress with a cup of 6-3-16 and Purdue chicken litter. Set the water emitters in place and whallar! Fruit to eat in a year or less.
