the big dynamic hornbeam - part 3

Now lots af assistants are taking off old soil. I want to make sure at this point in time that there is no 'soil' on the roots. I want it to be 'substrate'. I do not believe in washing out roots. I believe in raking and shaking out. Roots are NOT cut in general now. This will only weaken the tree.

"I do not believe in washing out roots."

Hello, Mr. Pall.

I am curious as to the reason behind. If you can explain I would appreciate it.
