Hi Bangkok - Mango Fang (Dog) here!
Glad you mentioned the mango root question - I'm about to plant some mango trees near a "known"
sewer line running along the side of my house. I've heard mango trees have true tap roots (meaning
one main root that goes straight down), so I plan on planting the two trees on each side of it and about
4 feet from it. I think the sewer line is about 5 feet down, so am hoping for the tap to go straight by
it though I know the other roots may try to get into it - to me that will take quite a long time and I'm willing
to chance it. I'm figuring it will take at least 15 years before it gets into it, if it does it at all.....and then....
I'll be 75 and probably won't be using the toilet that much anyway -
Next door to me they ran a new PVC pipe inside the old sewer line that's in the same location as mine
when there's got clogged up badly.....so here's hoping....
And my Mahachinok is a very healthy looking one that's doing just great - and I'm with the other guys -
go ahead and plant it near that cement slab!!!!
Go man go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
