Are citrus roots compatible with pipes?
Howdy! I'm planting several citrus trees (labor day sales got me!) and found a pipe in my hole. It's ~5" diameter PVC for the swimming pool, about 18" deep. Can I plop my little tree on top of it or will I end up with a plumbing issue in a few years when the tree gets larger?
And if it's okay from the pipe's point of view, would there be any problem for the tree with a sometimes warm, sometimes not warm pipe running through the roots? (The pool is mildly heated, but the pump isn't always on.)
Maybe I'm overthinking this...I'd appreciate any advice though. Thanks!
