What should I plant
I've decided my diveway will better lined with fruit trees than pine trees, since I have plenty of those in the woods. Anybody got any favorite varieties to recommend (in Maine). Know I'm going with Apples, Pears, Cherries, and PawPaws .. maybe peaches, figs, and plums.

Here's My Take: "How about nectarines? From what I read they can do well in the Maine winters if you live in the southern or central part of the state. Mine doesn't have to go through the winter, but the tree has proven itself to be hardy and it produces a lot of fruit." MYT

Here's My Take: "Thanks, I hadn't thought of those, though I love them. I'll have to check and see if they are hardy enough" MYT

Here's My Take: "I have been having problems with my zucchini plant. After I remove the male flowers the zucchini doesn't get much bigger. After a bit, the tips start to yellow. They are only getting about 50/60% full size. I am not sure if there is too much water or a lack of a nutrient. Anybody have any suggestion" MYT

Here's My Take: "Over watering usually shows up in yellowing leaves .. the zucchini failing to develop sounds like some nutrients are missing." MYT

Here's My Take: "That is what I figured. The plant looks healthy. I will try adding some nutrients. Thx!" MYT

Here's My Take: "ANY kind of fruit trees lining a drtiveway take a long time to bear fruit, and can be messy." MYT

Here's My Take: "Only took 12 months to get a bunch of fruit from my nectarine tree." MYT

Here's My Take: "a seven to eight year old tree should bear in the second year, and you really want it to establish before it yields. I'd probably go with that size to give it a fighting chance up here." MYT

Here's My Take: "That is probably a good idea. I am sure that will help it against the harsh winters up there. I got my tree from our local Arbor Day celebration about 15 months ago. The city puts on festivities at out local central park. They give away fruit trees every year. I am guessing it was about 3-4 years old. It was just undert 5 feet tall when I transplanted it. The tree now stands almost 6 feet tall. It produced around 60 nectarines this year. About half were on the small side, but all were delicious. I really didn't expect it to yield any fruit until next year. I guess the constant sunny weather here in California had something to do with it. The tree probably thought it was an extra long summer, with no winter at all." MYT

Here's My Take: "I now it helps to remove most of the fruit the first year, leaving just a few 'samples' so that the tree develops a strong root system." MYT

Here's My Take: "Maybe some big (eventually) shade trees, mingled in with fruit trees!!" MYT

Here's My Take: "You seem to be interested in just fruits!!" MYT
 
Posted by godux | 2 years ago

Here's My Take: "Going with some nuts too, Walnut and Filbert for sure, probably a Buartnut, if I can find one, and the nursery lady doesn't steer me away. That's an easier to crack cross between a butternut and a heart nut. Don't want to put those along the road as they'd grow into the power lines, while I can use dwarf fruit trees. They yield enough for me and some left over for the deer and other critters to scavenge." MYT

Here's My Take: "I have never grown a tree with nuts. Is it basically the same as growing a fruit tree or are there other factors involved?" MYT

 
Posted by godux | 2 years ago

Here's My Take: "The trees tend to be slower growing and get bigger. Some tend to 'kill' competing plants. They seem to vary a lot more in yield too. In a fairly predictable patter, they have bumper crops while they are almost barren.
They make better shade trees fro the most part, and make the squirrels happier." MYT
