Avocado tree in transplant shock - Oh! I'd be in despair by now but there is still a small chance. Remove all the leaves, keep it warm and moist and about 50% shade. Don't bother trying to keep any laminae, but leave some petioles because they protect the axillary buds and axillaries..16 days 21hrs
Avocado tree in transplant shock - Not enough information. How big is it? As a general observation, in an emergency relocation like that it would usually be wise to remove almost all the foliage or preferably cut all leaf laminae back almost to the petiole to reduce transpiration sur..17 days 9hrs
Apple branch squeezed - That doesn't look too bad to me, but how does that branch feature in your overall plan for that tree? I'd probably be inclined to leave it. Plants don't heal but they do overgrow damage like that and a young tree will quickly cover minor damage earl..95 days 21hrs
Mandarin fruit1 - Bunnings isn't all that bad, though they do sell something as "e;lemon grass"e; which is not Cymbopogon citratus and will someday be reported to the ACCC for it. (I think it's a genuine mistake because I warned their previous supplier and they ..101 days 10hrs
Pruning fig - Figs bear their fruit on new growth. Why do you want to reduce the base for the new growth? If you want to shape it or keep it small, bear in mind that pruning encourages a plant to start growing, so very late winter is going to be less disruptive t..138 days 24hrs
Plant identifcation - It certainly is. It's one of the worst. I'm in despair in one patch of garden where it has overgrown a healthy japonica (Coleonema pulchrum -I think)and is coming through some bush roses. One of my neighbours has it coming up in some soil they had ..145 days 7hrs
Plant identifcation - I'm with Julie on this one. Vinca major - periwinkle. The enlarging button doesn't work for me so I might be wrong, but I'd be nervous if it came up somewhere I didn't already have it. (Great groundcover though if you don't want to grow anything el..149 days 23hrs
What conifer is this - They look like roman cypress, Cupressus sempervirens..150 days 9hrs
Apache pecan seedlings - Why would you think they're apache seedlings? If the mother was apache they were presumably fertilised by something else. The father gets an equal share of the blame/credit...203 days 1hrs
Trees grown from seed - I don't understand the question. If you want seedling grown trees, almonds sprout readily if you buy local nuts this time of the year. Likewise pecans, hazelnuts and walnuts. Apples grow readily if you put fresh seeds in a little moist newspape..213 days 0hrs
Lots a lemons - Pick them when you need a lemon...220 days 4hrs
Fruit treesdon webercitrus springs fl - The only factor in fruit size, colour, flavour etc is the breeding of the mother. Cross pollination only affects the embryo (or embryos in polymbryonics) in the seeds, which will determine the next generation. It can't alter the characteristics of the..270 days 23hrs
Seedling chestnut flowering months old - Congratulations - I have chestnut trees twenty years old that haven't flowered. I've never seen anything like that. Must be global warming...276 days 0hrs
Jackfruit seedlings - Yes - don't allow double leaders to develop unless you have a good reason to do so. If a tree has two main trunks each will have all its branches and leaves on one side and gravity will pull it to that side. With only one leader a tree is balanced and..284 days 1hrs
Pistachio trees1 - I have been told chinese pistachio will pollinate your Pistacia vera. Can't swear to the truth of it but it was a usually reliable source..288 days 24hrs
