PowerShells ability to Format Table in regards to rows of information

So, I am running a Powershell command:
Get-ADGroup -filter * -Properties info | ? {$_.info -ne $null} | fl name, info

this gets me the:
1. name of AD groups
2. the Notes entered into AD (see attached file)

when you are in PS and you use FT -auto, it will give the information with columnwidth adjusted automatically.

If I run this command:
Get-ADGroup -filter * -Properties info | ? {$_.info -ne $null} | ft -auto name, info

I will only get the 1st row of data that is entered into the Notes section within AD.



Does anyone know how to either:
1. use FT to get all the rows to display
2. use any other powershell command to display the name of the group while displaying all rows in the Notes section   [but in a table format]

For example, the output would look like this (in comparison to the attached file):

Name                                         Info
A-team                                       Owner: Brian KT
                                                    Co-Owner: Rob N, Rod TA

B-team                                        Owner: Joe Snuffy
                                                    Co-Owner: JAne Doe
