So, form the sound of things, I have two choices...
a) build my container on or in the ground to allow the tap root to grow downwards..
b) build a very deep box so that the plant has room for the tap root...
if i were to chose method 'a' it would cost less, but what about gophers and moles? This place is littered with them... will they eat the roots?
if I were to choose 'b'.. it would cost a lot in compost, vermiculite, and peat moss depending on 'how deep' the box would need to be.. So how deep does the tap root go? 'deep' is a vague term to me at this point..
Thanks for the replies... I'm learning..
