araucaria
« on: April 14, 2010, 15:04:10 PM »

hello

we have an araucaria in a pot that is maybe 2m tall, and we really wish to plant it in our front or back garden but we are afraid that as we sometimes hear, its roots can really damage the house etc.

any advice?  i tried to find some information on the net but i did not manage. how far away should it be planted?

thanks and really appreciate, this is my first time here, but it wont be the last as we are at the very begining of planting a new garden

Tough one this, better off asking someone who DOES have one in his/her front garden - but judging by the number of people who do, and have not taken them out, possibly it's not so bad after all.

But either way as you know these trees grow large - very large and their suitability for gardens that are less than ample is debatable.

thanks for your advice, infact i have taken a look at a front garden which has one about 3 stories high, and it doesnt seem it is doing any harm.  i really don't know what to do.

maybe anyone who has one in his front garden can advice me better

thanks
