Well, not such a newbie, but a newbie in knowledge I am, despite reading these forums. I have a few questions. 1. My peve multicolor (pic #3) has what looks like maybe girdling roots? If they are, can/should i do something? 2. pic #2 - tree has leader cut off resulting in sideways growth. Anyway to rectify or just let it go at this point 3. pic #4 - olsens strawberry has one branch going off to the side, its assymetric and bothers me - can i just chop it off? its kind of big. 4. General q. I try to stake and train my container maples but i find the stake itself usually isnt firm enough in the small containers to really correct the trunk in other words it gets trained by the bent branches instead of vice versa. Is there a product people use to help? Thanks in advance!!
