planting near a septic tank
Posted 19 April 2009 - 04:21 PM
It would be several yards away from the end of the field. There used to be scrub pines on the spot when we moved in, so I assume the drain field is not out that far.
Do you think it would be safe? I'm not so much concerned for the safety of the septic system as I am about the safety of consuming fruit from the trees. I wouldn't want to eat any heavy metals that may come up from the soil.
Any thoughts or concerns?

Of course if you love to use zest, you may need to seek other sources.

Have you checked in to the meyer lemon, lime, or orange? They will grow indoors in a pot if it's warm. And sunny. Growlights anyone?

I would love a greenhouse for things like that, but the only sunny spot to put it is downhill from my septic tank! So... back to the original question of this post!
