fruit stumps
« on: July 15, 2009, 05:58 AM »
My mate had these 3 fruit trees he wanted removed so out i went with the pick and shovel. once i dug them up it seems the baseroot was well into the ground. there are some roots i would like to remove and lift the tree up when i repot.
i have another fruit tree a lot older and that has new shoot's comming out  :) so im sure they will be fine.

Looks like quite a project.  Do you know what kind of fruit they are?

I'm not sure at the moment. when spring comes i can get a good look at some new growth and some leaves.

it loves the hothouse
