Planting near a canal
« on: July 24, 2017, 02:28:35 PM »
Is it ok to plant annonas along a canal? They will be about four to five feet from the canal. Will it affect the trees being able to bear fruit? I am running out of space in my yard and that is the only area that I have left. Thanks in advance for any input.

The canal is fresh water? Annona doesn't have deep roots but if the tree will have wet feet you may
need to plant on a mound? Does the canal flood ever?

Use pure sandy loam(also known as Fill Sand) to start the annonas or really any fruit tree you desire. NO COMPOST! or any organic matter in the growing medium.

It matters if it is salt or fresh. Mine was salt, killed my few attempts due to flooding with a storm... was predictable of course, but I wanted to give it a shot anyway because I had an overabundance of annonas at that time due to a bulk purchase. Ah well...

If it is fresh water, depending on what species even in brief flooding it might do just fine and be very happy.
