I have a pear and an apple tree on my allotment which is waterlogged. Apart from doing major drainage work on the allotment is there any other sollution to this problem? I am affraid that the trees will get root rot. The allotment is leased from my local council.
A tree could be planted on a raised mound to keep at least part of the rootball out of the wetness. The mound could be at least one metre across, 20 cm high at the middle and tapering off to the sides.
