Paulownia couldn't be worse than wild mulberry which extends runners
deep underground everywhere, like persimmon and wild plum.
I posted this to a permaculture list:
I am interested in propagating KUDZU to plant in certain areas
that can benefit from its role as a nitrogen fixer and in other areas
where it can engulf and shade out other weeds (Bermuda grass and Johnson
grass). Upon harvest it could be used as livestock feed, mulch and as
an ingredient in compost.Somehow I am convinced I can keep it in check.
If I can control Bermuda, Johnson grass, crabgrass and pigweed I should be
successful with kudzu. Bamboo, no way to control it permanently
(if its growing from a neighbors land into your fertile tilled fields).
Question: What is the best way to propagate it?
tuber, runner, vine (layered), seed?
