Need Plants Fast-Growing with Strong & Deep Roots and
For what it's worth, I am VERY new to gardening.
I am looking for plants that have strong and deep roots to loosen soil without tilling. The faster they grow, the better. Since faster-growing is important, that rules out bushes and trees for right now. Looking for vegetable plants, herbs, decorative flowers, green manure plants, etc.
The Japanese Radish (& possibly most radishes) seems to be a good one. Others that I'm not quite sure of:
When you are looking up the details of various plants, root strength and depth doesn't seem a priority characteristic to list. Can anyone confirm or deny that those on the list above have strong, deep roots? Any other easy-to-grow plants fit the bill?
Thanks in advance for the help!
