Thanks for your advice. II haven’t been able to look at the video yet, because we are lacking the right update for GoLive, but hopefully I can see it soon. I know general D’s of pruning, but I am still having trouble finding the tree’s shape. In any case, the tree is in a large planter, approximately 48 x 46 inches, and 22 inches deep. The soil is Metromix– which is a lightweight mix that my husband got for our planters, so they would not be super heavy, as the garden is on a roof. I don’t think the planting caused the stress (as it has been in the container for about 2 years) but maybe the space is not right? Or maybe from uneven watering, as you said. We have an irrigation system. What do you think?
