Planting "Bloodgood" near retaining wall
I need to plant a Bloodgood close to a 5 ft high cement block retaining wall. The tree will be in the raised area) The container is 18" dia,(15 gal.) so I could go as close as 9" but I don't want to have a problem with the wall later. The garden space is somewhat tight and I want to have as much clearance between the tree and patio as I can get to allow for growth. I note that the established pyracantha, junipers, and nandina in this raised area that were planted right against the wall years ago by the previous owner are large and healthy.
2nd question; should I do any pruning on the Bloodgood now (it's just leafed out) or wait until next winter?
