Durian planting


I've been seeing more videos like this in Thailand recently.  They plant 3 trees together in a triangle to make the trees less susceptible to wind damage as well as to have branches criss-cross to help enhance pollination efforts...having different trees close by with different pollen.  I thought it was pretty interesting.  Techniques are always evolving.

This first video is a good overview of durian cultivation in Thailand.  About midway thru, it talks about the three trees method.

This vid is pretty much all 3-tree method.

Gone tropo:
Thanks for this mate how interesting I think Iím willing to give this a go the thais are always at the cutting edge with durian. Looks like they plant them 1.5 metres apart in the triangle!!!!

Thanks Jay
