    Stunted tree growth


    I am trying to grow a small tree in my garden but its growth appears to be stunted. Why is this happening? Is there anything I can do to fix it?

    "When it was planted was the hole twice as deep as roots and twice as wide? Did you put mixed compost and fertiliser to half depth in hole and then separate and spread the root to twice the width and infill with a compost and fertile mix?
    If not the growth will be stunted as the roots will be compressed so best to dig out and start again.
    Then whatever the weather ( even heavy rain) water every day for a month.
    Hope this helps

    "Make sure your tree is receiving the proper nourishment it needs and adequate sunlight and the tree will not be stunted and will continue to grow."
