Is my Anon tree dying?
« on: August 16, 2019, 05:31:40 PM »
This is a 4 to 5 year old Anon tree (purple variety). Last year went well with healthy leaves and 8 anon harvested. The leaves droped as normal but never returned. The pictures shown were taken on 8-16-2019. Two months ago I lightly fertalized with 666 and sprayed some neem oil. Any advice???

You can scratch the cambium to see if itís still green and moist. You can also break a small branch to see if itís dried up.

  I have a page atemoya that has done the same thing as you described. I stripped the leaves in feb/march and the buds swelled but have never popped open. It green under the bark so I know that itís not dead but Iím wondering how to stimulate some growth . Should I fertilize it with bioflora ?

Iíve used diluted liquid fertilizers to wake up sleeping trees and even grafts. I like liquid fertilizers because I know exactly what Iím giving the trees.

 Thanks for the advice. I have some water soluble fertilizer (20-20-20)  that I was thinking about diluting by half and drenching it .
