I’m very concerned by my last doctors report. It seems that I am showing all the signs of having a condition he called Exhaustipated. The good news is it’s not a terminal illness.
One more mostly uneventful year has quickly and quietly slipped away from me.
Unlike in years past. When most fruit, nut trees berry bushes and berry (vines) canes came bare rooted. Today you can get well rooted potted plants year round. It’s never to early or to late to plant well rooted potted trees or vines.
If you have been wanting to add or replace fruit, nut trees or berry vines now is a good time to do that project. Texas A&M University has a lot of useful information and fact sheet available on everything from Apples to Walnut planting and growing that you may find useful.
Before you rush out and buy that new tree / berry vine, look around and see what your neighbors are growing successfully. The simple fact is you won’t be very successful trying to grow oranges in Montana or berry bushes and vines in the hot dry south and southwest.
Do your homework before you buy that new tree, bush or berry vine. Most fruit, nut trees and berry producing plants like a pH neutral or slightly acid soil. Few fruits or berry producers will perform well in a high pH (alkaline soil).
Of course you can amend your soil to fit the needs of your new trees/vines. However this is a never ending battle that your are likely to loose in the long haul.
If you have questions about what fruit, nut or berry’s will do well in your area talk to your ‘Trusted’ nurseries on staff Master Gardner or better yet visit or call your local USDA agricultural extension agent. They have a lot of ‘free’ information and ‘free’ fact sheets that will be useful in helping you make a good choice in plant selection(s).
