Help with JM Size
I landscaped our new house about three years ago, and at the time knew very little about gardening. I bought a Bloodgood JM because it was beautiful and I knew very little about it except that JM's were "small." Anyway, I planted it in a little nook of the house. It's about a 4'x4' square with house on two sides and sidewalk on two sides. I now know that this tree is way too big for this spot and I never should have planted it there. Having said that, it's beautiful where it is and I would love to leave it. Is that at all possible? Can I root-prune it to slow growth as well as pruning it for size? Or do I need to bite the bullet and move it?
Of course, all that may be moot. I'm waiting to see if it will survive the freeze two weeks ago.
