For 7' or 10' tall trees, I use the bobcat or a ball-cart or tree-truck to transport the trees to just beside the holes, and lay them down. There is a knack to it, as you roll the root-ball into the hole, stand it up straight also. Most trees will need a slight adjustment, do this by prying up on the low side of the root-ball with 6' digging bars for 7' or 10' trees. What I call a digging bar is 6' or 7' long, every Lowes store has them, made of steel, they have a round knob or a point on one end and the other end is flattened to about 5" wide. You have to adjust the root-ball until the tree trunk is vertical; do not push on the trunk to straighten the tree. I have also used hay hooks; they are good to hook onto the wire basket also to straighten. I have only found aluminum hay hooks at Tractor Supply, but Augusta co-op in VA has steel hay hooks which are much stronger. For planting 36" root-ball trees, weighing 1,000 lbs and larger, it is better to let the machine place the trees. I hook a 7' chain across about 4 teeth on the bobcat bucket, and then hook the hooks onto the top strand of the wire basket almost straight across from each other. If you hook directly across it will cause the trunk to scrape against the bobcat bucket. If hooked about 3 or 4 inches less than directly across, the tree will travel at a slight angle as you approach the hole. As you lower the bucket and tree into the hole, have a man or two there pushing the tree so it is vertical as it touches down. Do not push on the trunk one the tree is resting in the hole. To straighten trees this size, use the chain on the bobcat bucket and hook to the low side of the wire basket, raise it until the trunk is straight. If you can get a root-ball to with a couple of degrees of straight by straightening , and the tree trunk still needs to be pulled over 3 inches or less, drive one stake opposite of where it is leaning, and pull the tree those few inches to be straight and tie to that stake. You can come back through after all the trees are planted and straight and drive the other stakes in and tie the other directions.
Frustrated at the symptoms, Sarah stopped to scratch the unending itch on the back of her right hand before she plucked another young vine from the end of her tomato plant. She knew that these suckers, as they were called, needed to be removed while they were young in order to keep the nutrients in the main vine of the plant. This would make her tomatoes grow large. Her gardening app had taught her this much, but most of growing her first garden had been a mix of transferring knowledge from one type of plant to the other.
Bamboo is very common in Asia but its increasing popularity in Europe and America is no surprise. More and more people like using bamboo in their gardens for example. It grows compact and fast and is always green. That makes it to a perfect, natural and cheap fence. Its strength and look makes bamboo valuable for flooring as well. While not always cheap, bamboo flooring is a real alternative and available in a vast variety.
Pittosporum tobira can be grown as an outside plant or as a containerized shrub. Pittosporum plants displays bright green leaves year and grows best in shady areas of low light. The flowers are small, white, and very fragrant, like the aromatic crushed leaves. Florists use stems and leaves as fillers in floral arrangements. Pittosporum shrubs are not fast growing, but eventually can form an excellent privacy hedge to block out automobile noise and fume emissions. Because Pittosporum tobira shrubs are salt water tolerant, these shrubs are popularly used in landscaping at Sea Island, Georgia. Large specimens of Pittosporum tobira are used as evergreen small trees, that subtly present an exotic, tropical appearance. Pittosporium tobira "Variegata" has variegated white and light green leaves with fragrant white flowers, blooming in the summer. The variegated leaf form of Pittosporum tobira is not burned by strong sunlight, like most variegated shrubs.
