Astragalus Special Cultivation Tips:

For best results make sure to cultivate in an extra coarse mix of at least a 5 to 1 ratio of crushed rock to fines. Extra sharp drainage is essential to avoid root rot and excessive growth that shortens life span. In addition many are susceptible to predation from ants that attack the starchy roots. The coarse mix will help deter this but an additional thin ( 1 inch ) layer of coarse rock, up to 2 feet around each plant or planting, has successfully deterred scout ants in trials due to the rough terrain and inability to lay down a consistent scent trail. A mix of crushed pea gravel and 1 inch coarse rock ( especially lava fines ) is very effective.
