Our avocado tree is dropping its fruit too early. They are small, milky once ripened, and tasteless. We have watered, but not fertilized her for a few years.
To what height can I cut back a mature fig tree to get it to grow like a bush instead?
My avo-tree is now seven years old and is bearing fruit for the second year, why is it loosing so many brown leaves during springtime?
Can I put lime on my fruit trees, especially my citrus trees, and when do I do it?
I have been growing a dwarf orange tree indoors for several years. It continues to grow taller and appears to be in good health. The problem is that the branches and the main trunk are the same in diameter.
My tree had lots of mayhaw berries, but they were covered in a rust-like powder so none were fit to make jelly. What do I do for next year's crop?
I have a friend who lives about 50 miles away, at the foot of the mountain. On a tip from her wiser friend, she piled everything left from canning peaches in a heap in the garden.
Something is eating my leaves in my weeping cherry tree.
I would like advice on growing dwarf fruit trees in a pot.
I have a fig tree that I planted 3 summers ago. It has grown well and is now about 7 feet tall. We have let 4 main shoots remain and cut back the others. We bought it at a flea market and I do not know what kind of fig it is.
I am trying to find an old apple tree variety that used to grow outside of our house. I know this variety is at least 100 years old and would love to replace the dead tree with a new one of the same variety. It is a late maturing apple, yellowish green in color, sweet and crisp.
I have several of these trees growing in my yard. They are volunteers, meaning they just grew up on their own. I live in the Pacific Northwest (Western Washington near Puget Sound). New ones grow up around the largest tree so I'm assume they are from seed from the tree. They have some white flowers in the spring and the fruit shown in one of the pictures is about the size of a jumbo olive and olive shaped or plum shaped.
I want to plant lilacs and also some fruit trees. Do you do that in the fall?
