How do you get 150 people to give a shit about an 8th grader's graduation?
I recently planted three new trees in our backyard. Two consisted of Chinese Pistache for shade. They are about 30 feet apart from each other. The problem I have is one is doing very well, and the other is dying. Almost all the leaves are now brown, and sagging. Its been 5 days since the plant (15.5 gallon containers). I've watered them daily, not flooding, but keeping moist. I've fertilized them all. Sun is great. I am not affluent with trees whatsoever! I've briefly read online that a stoppage in good water drainage below can hurt these. Or of course disease or fungus. How do I go about troubleshooting the problem? The ground is soft and moist where I dug about 30 inches down. There is no hardpan and actually had some sand.
Is it common to put rocks below the hole to ensure drainage? Almost like you would when doing a fence post?
