The Q&A Archives: eugenia fruit setting

Question: We bought eugenias for a hedge, unfortunately they are producing many small cherries which stain our patio and fall into our pool. Is there a spray to prevent fruit setting? Thanks

Answer: The only way to stop fruit set is to remove the flowers from your Eugenia. Since you're growing it as a hedge, you probably already shear to shape your plants; why not time your shearing to coincide with the end of the blooming period? This will effectively remove the flowers and any potential fruit.

Best wishes with your garden.
