My question is, what are the guidelines for distance between these plants.
Second question. The trees that we are cutting down are deciduous (with spikes instead of leaves) (I hope that I got it right) and the soil is not that great. Would it be a good idea to completely till the area and dump a few dozen sacks of topsoil in the area.
Third question. The trees that we are planting, for the first year, will be pretty small with a small root system. Sould it be prudent to plant potatoes for that first year, between trees but at a few feet distance from them. Would hate to see this tilled space go unused.
