This is one of our Semi Famous “Mondays with Mike” Segments that I do for our Backyard Growers.
Last week I went to a wholesale nursery stock auction and pick up about two truck loads of nursery stock. I’m going to do a post about growing flowering Hydrangea shrubs into trees so I grabbed a few Tree Hydrangea so I could use them in my up coming post which I will do today, as soon as I post this.
But as is often the case at a wholesale nursery stock auction, some of the plant (many of the plants) in the auction have been selected to be sold at auction because they are less than perfect and do not meet the standards that the growers wants for his best wholesale customers. So they auction them off, often at below market value.
In the case two of the trees that I bought were not pruned in the field when they should have been and that created an issue that I did my best to correct and the root balls we very loose.
In this video, with the help of the Donkeys, I show you how to correct some of these issues.
Oh yeah, in this video I also mess up tying up the root ball! Urrrrrg!
Watch and enjoy.
