trying to save a kishu
I put a newly-purchased seedless kishu mandarin in the ground and after four months it looked ready to die. I think the soil in that particular part of the yard has serious problems. I put meyer near there two years ago that won't grow but won't fully die - just kind of sits there looking lame.
The kishu, though, needed help, so I transplanted it into my sloppy 5-1-1 mix into a decent pot. Here's the before, during, and after.
Odds on recovery? Meanwhile, I am going to have that soil tested. We found a very VERY old concrete water transport trench when putting in irrigation pipe. Maybe that breaking down has done something to the PH or introduced some kind of bad soil condition.
