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

Hi, How did your Tree Lucerne grow?
Fiona11 says... [171 days 10hrs ago]
Hi Faith1, they are still alive but very slow growing where we have them. Not sure if its due to the alkaline soil and they are getting mineral locked or just a very slow growing tree. I am happy they are still alive!
