Chandelier Springs is my laboratory where I can experiment with different growing techniques. I have access to many different growing media. This trial was set up to compare the growth characteristics of a tomato seedling planted in soil that has different bark products in the soil mix. The results of the trial are noted and a second set of trials are done if anything interesting happens. The larger pot is the standard mix we use on the farm, composted horse manure, worm castings, and coir. The bark products are fir and redwood.
