Smoke tree with wet feet
I am in the mts. of NC and have a 3 year old smoke tree that needs help. During dry weather it does quite well but when we have an extended wet period it takes a beating. Leaves wilt and turn brown. I hate to see the poor thing not live up to its potential.
I would guess it likes dry feet. My question is; short of digging it up and amending a large area of soil ( I have a sandy clay)is there any other remedy? Perhaps digging around it and adding sand?
I don't think it will die but it sure won't have a good life.
