Planting Lychee

    2 responses

Haley starts with ...
We just received a lychee, loquat and 2 Ned Kelly grevilleas of good size and excellent condition from Daleys. Thanks! Does the general advice for heavy soils to plant fruit trees on a small mound apply to a cutting-grown lychee? I've read they have very shallow roots and can be blown over easily.

Hi Haley,
I always try and mound my fruit trees on clay. Don't do a little mound, but raise the entire area you expect the roots to be. This could be a mound with a diameter of several meters, with a height 30-50cm in the middle.
I also dig a hole in the entire area. So I might dig down about 20cm around an circle 2m in diameter and then put all the soil back (so it is the same clay - just looser) and then I mound on top.
I'd give that a go for the lychee. They are delicious fruit and worth investing in the soil to improve your chances of a healthy tree.
