And two pictures of some bud on my hazelnut tree. Are those going to be hazelnuts?
Then to top it all. I planted two new IEB mulberry trees 3-4 weeks ago. They are doing very well with a lot of growth. Actually much more than I ever expected. An inspection of everything today was in order and I found both of my mulberry trees with zero leaves. Deer ate every single leaf…every one!
The first two photos are hazel. The third is likely a native iris. The fourth is again your hazel. I’m not sure what you’re asking about it.
The fifth, your peach has some a bit of leaf spot and is yellowing from either too much water or not enough. No big deal there.
Your cherry looks great. Don’t expect perfection from all trees in general. Those tiny spots are leaf spot at the most. There isn’t anything going on.
Hope this helps.
I haven’t grown hazel nut in 30 yrs. But those are the male flowers not the female that becomes the nut.
Hey Barkslip, thanks for the response. I guess maybe being new at this I’m just a bit paranoid. I live in a very humid area so it appears I’ll need to get used to some fungis all the time. So far if the leaf looks really bad I just pick it off. I just read so much about disease I guess I want to stay on top of it. All of my fruit trees are planted on a hill so although the native soil is clayish I did use garden soil and peat mix planting all of them and growth rate seems to be quite good. I’ll have to do more protecting when they start to fruit. It’s total country out here with a lot of critters that will be thrilled to eat my fruit. To answer what I’m asking is I don’t really have much grass on the hill so a very wide variety from berries to weeds to plants grow on it. It’s my understanding it’s fine to keep certain stuff but others need removed. I just noticed I have half dozen of those plants in the picture and didn’t want to leave them if they were bad for my trees.
That’s how they look during that phase of growth/this time of year. Nothing unusual there.
Unless your leaves curl up, puff up, get a ton of spots on them, turn completely brown, turn completely red, have things crawling on them or growths on the leaves… you can forget about it.
Do your dormant sprays. And if any of the above happen, you should probably ask what or if something needs be done.
Best o’ luck,
Thank you much Dax. That really eases my mind. Im ready already to dormant spray and have read up a lot on pruning. With all the help from you guys i feel I’ll be successful. Thnx again!
The curly fibers and sharp tips in the third picture suggest yucca to me. Not sure where you are located but they live in a fairly broad range
Far North Florida…
I agree yucca on the third pic.
