Pecan trees are loaded…
Wowzers! It is going to be a great pecan year this year folks! Our pecan trees (maybe all pecans for all I know) tend to have a really productive year, then a not so productive year, then a productive year. Last year was terrible, but then again we had the hottest summer in Texas history, so difficult to know.
But what I will say is that I have been learning a lot about pecan trees and their need to be fertilized. I have fertilized them twice this year with an organic fertilizer and they like it BIGTIME. I have observed better leafing, greener, TONS of fruit, overall healthier looking trees. I was forgetting about these guys and taking them for granted.
Don’t forget to take care of your shrubs and trees, they play a vital role in the landscape, and all too often get forgotten when we fertilize and use other important organic gardening methods.
How are your pecan trees this year? And do you pass over your trees and shrubs when nurturing your garden?
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Pecan pie….
