This was a 1 gallon tosho from Mas Ishi . Grown in growund for 4 years. Kinda gangly. So I thought it might make a good grove in time.

next plop plant in box

Stake it up and thin it out --The whole plant is root connected. original root ball is on the right. The tree is laid on its side and all branches staked up. in time the whole trunk gets roots
