2 orchard questions
First, I had somone helping me mix soil for raised planting of cherry trees. my water table gets high in winter so i brought in soil and took native soil from other places about a quarter native to 3 quarters from outside. I had piled up cotton wood mulch in a ring around the outside of the burm to the ht. it would be.
My friend mixed in the chips. I would say the mound is about 15-20 % chips now.
Do I need to push the mix to the outside and start over in the middle? Or is it ok to plant the trees in this?
Also was wondering if putting horse manure on top of the mulch of my trees that were planted last year is ok or if i need to push the mulch aside, put the manure down and put the chips back??
