    Soil in video seems very ideal. I look forward to learning how to do the same thing in heavy clay. 🙂 Bring soil in? Mix some soil? Ideas?

    I think you need to take some time and go to woodprix website to learn how to make it.

    @stopasking formynamegoogl I would do a percolation test first, (our video called Soil Survey tells you how). If your drainage is good than go ahead and plant the tree. If your drainage isn't good enough you can make a 6-12 inch high mound that is 2.5-4 feet in diameter or a raised bed to plant the tree in. http://www.davewilson.com/home-gardens/growing-fruits-and-nuts/planting-your-backyard-orchard

    What if your soil is clay like clay pots?  Will this method work for this tree?  I have an indian blood tree.

    I feel like you should be speaking in sloooow moootiooon. lol I am in Central California and was wondering – I have an area in front of my house that gets all day sun in the summer. Will that kill a new tree?

    The smaller trees are just as viable as the two-year-old tree. The major difference will be when you get fruit. The particular tree we planted is a multi-graft on standard root stock so it is a rather large specimen.

    Always great information. I see that was a big bare root tree but was wondering about the cheaper small one foot trees you see, are they normaly just as viable? Just picked up my new 4 acre dream property & want to put lots of different fruit trees on it after I timber it. tks
