The one most often used for a manganese deficiency is a foliage spray of manganese nitrate, manganese sulfate, or Southern Ag's Nutritional spray.
gozp, the deficiency your leaves are showing is manganese, not iron. At this time of year these "transient" Manganese deficiency symptoms are VERY common. These transient symptoms are due to a marginal supply of available manganese in the soil, which the tree roots temporarily are unable to extract enough Manganese to supply the large rapidly growing new flush of leaf growth. Normally the leaves will return to the normal dark green color as the grow flush ends, and the roots are able to once again catch up. However, you can apply a manganese spray such as Southern Ag Nutritional spray if you wish, or in most cases simply do nothing. In the rare event that the leaves still look deficient upon the completion of the flush, there is always time to apply manganese.
has anyone tried grinding up redwood pines to use as pesticides?
I did any experiment yesterday by applying to my mango tree that has little white scales. I grind the pine needles in a blender and rub it onto the mango tree. So far, it's to early to know if it will come back. Good thing about this is that it's natural as the redwood tree I have do not have any kind of insects on them at all.
Check at night. I'm going to check tonight too.Took a thorough look at both trees and didn't find any insects that might be the culprits. I have to agree with Cookie Monster on this, at least for my trees: new growth followed by some rains, resulting in a fungus.
Should I let 'em be and let nature take over? Or should I cut off the affected growth to help inspire new growth? If so, where to make the cut?
Two or three weeks ago my two mango trees, a Cogshall and a Pickering, both put forth a growth flush. But on both trees the new growth has all turned black and shriveled. Never had this before. I'm guessing fungal issue?
Does anyone know what kind of morus nigra variety does dave wilson nursery has?
I didnt like the taste no sweetnes detected but sour... its been in the ground for almost a year --this tree grows pretty quick....
was wondering if it has something to do with the maturity?
im looking to pug it & graft it to a better variety....
is it possible say for instance graft a persian to a morus nigra(dwarf)?
I believe they have persian and black beauty.
the taste should be close to a blackberry, at what color are you picking them?
Moving a 6' Lychee tree shouldn't be much of a problem, just follow Mike's advice. I recently dug up a 12' Hak Ip Lychee and moved it to my new home in Palm Beach County. I started pruning the roots back in June and took about 4' off the canopy when I moved the tree in September. Here's a couple of photos, when I moved the tree and the tree today. The tree never dropped a leaf and is now pushing out new growth. I'm looking forward to a good crop in 2017 as it had 25 lbs. of fruit this year.........Larry G
PS....your biggest problem may be digging a hole in the Keys but I assume you've already prepared for that.
