I know the following message isn't specifically about Aroids, but it is
about gardening so that I can grow some large aroids outside.
It's finally spring here on Long Island and it's time to set up the new
beds. This year, I want to have some large areas of colocasias, alocasias
and caladiums with my few Amorphophallus mixed in.
Long Island garden soil is essentially sand with a couple bits of organic
material. My landscaper dropped off a huge mound of oak leaf compost and
I'd like to mix that in. Tropicals usually do great in it. I tried using
my trusty old electric cultivator (Black & Decker) and got bored with the
slow progress. It works but it takes a toll on the motor and doesn't do a
very deep job (frankly, only about 3 or 4 inches at best) Instead, I want
to get a small, yet powerful gas-powered tiller.
Does anyone out there have experience with the Mantis? I've compared that
to what little I can learn about Troy-bilts. It appears that the Mantis is
perhaps more appropriate for my purposes (in size).
Does anyone know of others that are the size of the Mantis?
(I saw the mantis at: http://www.mantisgardentools.com and believe it's
the same as the one Sears sells under it's Craftsman label)
