Water only wicks up 300mm but roots grow down :wink:
Have seen a stone fruit tree grown in a full barrel with a 200mm/8" res.. Tried to find the link the other day for a chap but can't so you'll have to take my word for it :D

& yes Rod, found you here as well mate :wink: :wave:

I really like that wicking/air pruning project (via Rob Bob I'm guessing). I may have to try one of those out here at home. The wife keeps wanting me to start some lemon trees. I also have three baby banana trees I need to transplant. Those containers would keep those buggers from spreading into unwanted areas. Great work! :)
