    Hey Jake,

    Thanks for another good video. I am curious if you have any thoughts for growers in other places of the country, specifically in the Midwest. Here there is a pretty solid topsoil layer most places. I've heard from a number of sources that in this situation one has to be careful not to over amend the soil as that can discourage the tree from sending roots out further.

    Have you ever seen roots from your fruit trees traveling out of the planting holes into the surrounding soil (for instance when you are digging a new hole to plant another tree)?

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    Just picked up a blood orange, maces mix, and mulch from the urban garden. First tree I will have ever planted and I'm feeling pretty confident, even tho all my palm trees have one foot in the grave! Around a $100 to get 1 tree going.

    I thought Mycorrhiza and Mycelium are fungus, not bacteria. Mycelium is the vegetative, underground body of ANY fungus (including parasitic), Mycorrhiza is any fungus that specifically grows in symbiosis with plant roots. ? But I love your channel and all you do! Just saying!

    apart from mulch, do you mix all of them together? do you mix worm castings with the other components?

    Great video! I plan to implement this mix into my garden that I will be starting in 2017 in Texas. I had a real hard time getting much to grow in my clay/sand soil. I have more confidence now that it will be successful!! Thanks.

    I wonder how plants survived before commercial soil ammendments were available. Fungi is not needed. Its in the air naturally and will manifest in the soil if you have enough moist carbon. Rock dust is not necessery as all minerals are available in seaweeds/tree-leafs. Just mulch with that. Ground up egg-shells are a good kalcium resource. Human urine are a great nitrogen. But normal rain is the best stable nitrogen resource. Rain will be absorbed in the wood chips (browns) and be slowly released over the years. Thank you.

    When you trim trees, you disinfect the lopper blades to avoid spreading virus. When you receive a load of wood chips, you are often receiving chips from diseased trees.

    How come the chips are not spreading virus's?

    Love these Friday chats! Have either one of you grown a cinnamon tree here in the valley? Which type? I have taken a class from Greg Peterson and I enjoyed that ! I haven't been watching Jake that long but I am enjoying what I am learning from him as well!

    My understanding was that if you add all of these amendments to the hole that the roots would just hang out in that great environment and not stretch out deep into the soil?

    fffff

    azomite is expensive sand 😉

    your native soil is very sandy so you dont need additional sand.

    I'm assuming this basic recipe would work in most parts if not all of the country, right ? Virginia Beach is where we live. I have been successfully growing and harvesting 10 months out of the year here.

    Jake I have a row of fruit trees that has a good depth of mulch however I have a huge problem with Bermuda grass that has taken over the raised bed. Last year I manually ripped a lot of it out but I can't seem to get rid of it can you help?

    hey @jakemace and @gregpeterson! I have a citrus tree question… I live in Las Vegas, I have a bearss lime and a Lisbon lemon tree. they are both fruiting and will go into the ground in February (we've had them in pots until we bought a house). we want to create a citrus area of the yard and want to add a tangarine and a kumquat tree… possibly and orange tree also. when we were at my in laws for christmas we mentioned this and i was told that the lemon and lime will make the oranges sour….so, here is my question: if I plant all the citrus in the same area will the cross pollination of all of them truly affect the flavor?
    our lemon and lime have always cross pollinated and taste perfectly amazing. but now I'm worried about the other citrus we want to plant… any advice will help! thank you in advance! y'all are awesome!!!!
