Jul 5 '13 at 17:16 comment added FAE @BenBrocka Yep, note the last bullet point where if you plant 2 rows initially, you can completely avoid this restriction. Just try not to plant too much at once, pretty much.
Jul 5 '13 at 13:47 comment added Ben Brocka I was wondering if that was possible. Is it possible to completely overcome the "middle" restriction by doing that carefully then?
Jul 5 '13 at 13:16 comment added FAE @BenBrocka That's consistent with my findings. If you planted both of those inside slots at the same time, then they make it so they're each counting as a tree that surrounds the other. What I did to remedy that was cut down the trees at 1 o'clock and 3 o'clock of the oval to make it an open space, plant the middle ones and let them get to the first stage of growth, and then replant the ones I cut.
Jul 5 '13 at 13:04 comment added Ben Brocka It seems it's a bit more complicated than this, when placing trees in a wide oval of staggered rows I found that BOTH slots inside the oval couldn't grow trees, so it seems like any slot completely surrounded by trees, even if not completely adjacent, might be unable to grow a tree

Jun 20 '13 at 16:28 comment added James Awesome! I have also had good luck just adding two spaces horizontally with the knight chess layout.. When I get the green house garden place thingy open and can redo trees a bit more I will hopefully get a much nicer set of gardens :D

added more research
Jun 20 '13 at 13:46 comment added FAE @James I did some research and yes, that seems to work fine! Updating my answer.
Jun 17 '13 at 16:55 comment added James Can you surround a grown tree? So plant two rows, let em grow then add the third?
