How many pecan trees do you have?
1 very good one and one that's struggling. They aren't big and spreading, but tall. They flank either side of the front door's walkway. Unfortunately, they're in lawn, so they probably get a little too much water.
Didn't get a crop last year (well, maybe 5 nuts), but last year's crop was the result of blatent neglect. All trees got a good dose of fertilizer this year (and last) and really perked up.
we have a few pecan trees that make about five nuts a year only year they made more then that was when we put duck water on them
Duck water is some powerful fertilizer isn't it.
That reminds me I need to wrap my trees for winter... Oops
I used the Miracle Grow tree stakes made for fruit and nut trees. Easy-peasy... Just pound it into the soil and forget. Found at Wal-Mart even.
I read about an old estate where the oak trees had started to go bad, so they called in a specialist to take a look at them. He asked them what they do with all the leaves they drop, and was told that they rake them away. Mystery solved, they were taking away from the soil, so the oaks were having trouble getting enough nutrients. Once they started mulching them with leaves again, the oaks perked up.
Do those really work. I have 2 large, nearly 20 year old crab apple trees I should try them on. My DH suggested those, but somehow I could not figure how a large tree would get enough from a small tree stake in one place..
Fruit used to be large, now like berries.
@sunflour how about adding some compost around the trees?
Duh, never thought of that…good idea.
