Plant bee balm & borage to attracting beneficial insects. Borage adds calcium, potassium & other minerals to the soil. Nasturtium planted beneath pear trees & allowed to climb around the tree provides protection from coddling moth & fruit tree borers. Plant legumes to help fix nitrogen. Keep your pear tree and legume watered & fertilized.
The beauty of Biochar. Biochar is charcoal that you bury in your garden. It does many of the cool things that compost does – it holds water and nutrients like a sponge, it encourages crazy fungal growth. But unlike compost, it cannot be eaten by soil micro-organisms. It lasts just about forever. And if you’re an environmentalist, there’s a side benefit: that carbon won’t go into the atmosphere, which helps offset global warming.
