Tagasaste - Tree lucerne
I have dry sandy soil that repels water, hot dry summers and low rainfall. Light frosts in winter. My lucerne trees have flourished and have done a brilliant job as nurse trees, surrounding more sensitive plants until they get established. | Vanessa Bettles - Gulgong , NSW 04-Jun-2017
