So I’ve got this Silver Maple tree standing by itself in the backyard. It’s a baby, being maybe 14-16 feet tall at the most, and it was put in by the landscapers last spring. Having read and bought into permaculture, I’d like to put a small guild of companion plants around it. My pressing need is for soil improvement, so some nitrogen-fixers and soil miners are in order.
Does anyone have some suggestions? I’ve got the books and will go digging through there for ideas, but I’ve been busy with other things and I’d hope this would start a conversation.
