Tree planted too shallowly - what to do
This is our first summer in our new home. The previous owner (who was a professional gardener) pointed out this tree to me.
She told me that most people wanted to plant trees too deeply and that she was sure she planted this the right depth, but that she staked it to keep it upright...... (hmmm)
Well, last week the rope of one of the stakes snapped and the tree flopped over to no-kidding- no more than a 45 degree angle from the ground.
It obviously needs to be deeper, but I really don't know what to do.
I will post more pics
