What a cool song. Queen, one of the all time greats.
As I dug this thing out of the ground today, that song rumbled thru my brain. The base is huge, and has a great flare. The roots had escaped thru the pot in four places, but I was able to chop them back with the chicken cleaver. Tomorrow I will wash the roots and begin the ground layer. The large roots should be pretty large as one I severed was about two inches across.
