persimmon not growing

    7 responses

maxzoo starts with ...
hi, i planted a flat seedless variety 6months ago and it has done zip.. No new leaves. It got hit with hail shortly after planting and i have read they are slow but i was expecting at least one new leaf. I scratched the bark and it is green butcan anyone else relate to this slow start? I also just noticed the grafting tape is coming off and the graft looks all split /not smooth (i don't know much about grafting sadly). ????? Thankyou.

They put nearly all of their growth into their spring flush when coming out of dormancy. It is fairly common for them to not put any growth on for the rest of the season in the first few years.

I've found the same, one flush in spring and that's all they will do. If you are really lucky you can get a small bit of growth later.... But not much. Very slow growing for me.

Same; slow. Seems to be the norm.

yeah, and they are very slow to leaf out in spring. I've thought a few of mine dead previously when they took at least a month longer than established trees to leaf out. Keep feeding it below the ground and eventually you'll be rewarded above ground.

Thanks for the replies..depressingly reassuring that all is normal! There is a placenta buried under this one so as its special it MUST survive :-)

Try giving it lots of water, I find Persimmons love a good for regular drink. Does your plant have any leaves? Maybe a photo would be useful.seeing that it has your child's placenta it's put a bit more importance on keeping it alive.
