|i planted a new Fuyu Persimmon tree a couple of months ago. I planted the bare root' tree at the corner of my lawn area in a sunny location. I so far had not seen any growth of leaves. How long should i expect to see leaves, and do you think planting the tree at the corner of lawn is a bad decision, since it may get watered more often. also not far from the persimmon tree, i planted a Washington Navel orange tree approximately 5 feet away. Is that too close to each oter? Thank you|
|Persimmon trees are quite adaptable and as long as the soil drains well (doesn't remain soggy), your tree should be happy in the corner of the lawn. I'm afraid planting a navel orange tree within 5' of your persimmon wasn't a good idea, though. Both trees will need lots of elbow room as they mature. I'd move one of them - either one - at least 20' away so that when the canopy of the orange tree matures, both trees will have adequate space. Your persimmon tree probably won't leave out for another 3-4 weeks. It takes time for the roots to become established and for the trees to respond to warm springtime temperatures before they'll wake up from their winters' rest.|
Best wishes with your fruit trees!
