    We have no problem finding the 250 ml size. It's the 500 ml that seems to be discontinued at most places. The ones that do have them, when we can find them, have limited stock.

    What is the spacing of the trees? For them to add diameter the crowns need room, they should not be touching. You may need to cut a few down so the others will start putting on new growth.

    Yes, you want to use the arch board under bricks not the blanket. The blanket will compress under the weight of the bricks and you will lose some of the insulating properties of the blanket.
