They are planted in smaller pots within the larger pots. The soil is probably not compacted enough to support the inner smaller pot. They should probably be planted directly into the larger pot. I am sorry this has become a maintenance issue. Next year perhaps Diane and I can locate a spot on the lawn next to the sidewalk and it can be connected to the irrigation system.

Can you provide Alysen with the vendor's maintenance recommendations for the two new trees/plants at the north entrance to City Hall, or remind us of the species so we can investigate ourselves? Bob Fluchel commented that the tree sagging is likely the result of overwatering. For a while we didn't have anyone watering; now I fear we have too many cooks in the kitchen. At our staff meeting this week, several admitted that they had been watering the plants or witnessed several others take a turn. I'm sure the on-again, off-again rain storms are a contributing factor, too. We just want to communicate to the staff about responsibilities and maintenance standards.
