Plant poodle in ground. You probably should have done this years ago, by the way. By now, your poodletree has grown to full size. But with fall coming, be prepared to rake your poodles into a pile. After jumping in the pile a few times – how can you resist? – rake them into a bag and tie it shut with Velcro. Leave out for the green waste recycling truck. Betcha five bucks they open the bag and jump in the pile one more time.
