Away to our first northern area truffle hunts for 2020. The Dogs were interested in several trees, but sadly, no truffle yet. We talked to growers about our experiences with Spanish wells around trees and passed on details of tree growers and soil and root testing facilities.
The next trip was south and success finding first Perigord truffle for a happy grower. Trees are a mix of Hazel, Robur Oaks and Ilex Oaks aged between seven and fifteen years.
