What is the basis for their decomposition that is astonishingly slow, and what method would you recommend?

Choose a sunny, sheltered site in which to grow your plants outside and a few weeks before planting outside and a few weeks before planting out dig a large hole for each plant, allowing 90 cm between them. Mix plenty of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the excavated soil. Refill to give a low mound into which your plant can be planted.
