I bought 10  trees from Mr. Robin in July and uppotted them all from Mr. Robin's 2 gallon pots.  I found rootballs with plentiful, dense roots and no sign of RKN.  I mentioned it to him and he advised that he had solved that issue.

Hello Bill,

My experience with Mr. Robin was even better than your experience as I drove out to see him in July 09.

The figs that I got from him had root balls as you describe - plentiful and dense.  I uppotted to 5 gallon containers and found the roots circled the original 2 gallon pots.  Relative to the dense rootball, it was difficult to get water into the middle.
Recently, I read one of Herman's old posts where he advised that for ease in watering rootbound container plants to insert a large nail/spike into the center of the rootball, withdraw the spike and fill the hole with sand so that water will channel into the ball.

It makes sense to me and wanted to pass it on.
