Jennifer and I had fun planting this on the stone slab.

Hello Walter,
How do you keep the soil on the slab?
I know keto is used a lot to make a kind of wall around the slab but I don't see it on your photos. And I sort of expect you to use something more modern and local anyway.
Thanks
Jeroen

Jeroen, trees which have been in cultivation for a very long time have a very compact root ball. It is usually not required to use keto.

This kind of trees grows in almsost EVERY kind of substrate or solil. The problem is maintnenace. In SOIL myou will kill them sooner or later. Maybe you ahve not understood yet what modern substrate really does.
