A friend wants to plant 8 meter cocount trees in only 50cm depth of soil, under which is solid concrete. Surely this is insufficient depth for the roots to form and the coconut to become stable?
What size coconut can be planted in this area?
Wheat depth planting depth does an 8meter coconut need?

Many thanks,
