Mango tree offseason recommendations..?
« on: August 22, 2023, 09:11:30 AM »
I got 11 Mangoes off my tree this past season. Wondering what supplements might be recommended for the tree between now and next season.

Calcium, & no nitrogen with minor nutrients. If you are able to start a spray regiment- beneficials, minor nutrients, copper fungicide, & potassium silicate. Also if you have access to chipped mulch, something to improve the soil quality

I like to Prune now.

In the fall (or likely winter) Burn some oak when the first coldfront rolls in and lightly sprinkle the ash in circle around tree the next day. Worked great for me last year. Lot of calcium and other goodies for fruit production in wood ash.
