Planting on a Wet area
im in need of your expert advise. Here is the back story:
I planted a pomegranate tree 3 weeks ago on clay soil and a 6 inch border. I checked on it after it rained. The hole had filled with water around the root ball. I pulled the tree out and back filled the hole. I added about an inch or so of playground sand over it. Then I sat the tree on top of the sand and covered it with a mix of mostly potting soil, some sand and clay. In other words the tree is planted above ground on a 5-6 in raised circle on top of the original spot.
I know pomegranates don't like wet feet, so the question is: will this affect the root later on as the tree grows? The spot is not permanently wet but when it is the moisture is not visible until you step on it.
Thanks in advance :)
