Enrobing

The dictionary tells us that enrobing is a process of covering roots with praline, which is a fertiizing substance made from earth mixed with fertilizer.

Before planting a rosetree or a tree, you enrobe the bare roots.  Applying a mixture of mud, well-decomposed dung and water prevents the roots from drying and helps the plants growth  :

  1. Wash the roots and remove the broken ones
  2. Mix good garden earth with well-decomposed compost in a bucket or a wheel-barrow.
  3. Add water until you obtain a smooth, creamy mixture.
  4. Steep your plant’s roots in the mixture.
  5. Plant your plant in its designated place.

In specialized shops, concentrated enrobing powder is available.
