Pawpaw

    1 responses

Sree Kumar starts with ...
I bought 5 pawpaw plants from Daleys over the past 3 years. One has grown to 4m ht. the 2nd one grew to about 1.5 m then lost leaves & trunk rotted away & died. Of the other 3 bought last year, one died within a month. the other 2 are about 60cms ht and are showing sings of wilting. Even the 4m tree's leaves are drying. I will try Dolomite, Sul of Potash, mulch & copper oxy chloride on leaves. But I think roots are waterlogged. Should I uproot & replant higher with loose sandy soil?
