Persimmon is a very useful and sweet fruit,the use of which brings great pleasure to both children and adults. Therefore, once the fruit is eaten, I still want to eat it. And there was one bone left. What to do? Gardeners decided to try to grow persimmon from the stone. How it can be done and whether it is possible at all, we will tell in more detail.
According to breeders, persimmon from the bone -it's not as difficult as growing citrus at home. Just keep in mind that it will start to bear such a tree after about 6 or even 7 years. This will happen if you take care of it properly. About how to grow a persimmon from a bone, written a lot. Therefore, it is difficult to understand. Let's try to collect all the necessary information together.
So, a persimmon is a rather unpretentious plant,so the seeds do not need additional treatment before planting. They just need to be washed and immediately planted in prepared soil. After that, cover them with a plastic wrap and leave it until until they sprout. It is better to plant about 10-12 seeds for complete certainty, because some of them may be frozen and will not ascend. As soon as the persimmon from the bone gives the first shoots, they will need to follow and remove the defective and unviable.
After reaching the height of 45-50 cm seedlingscan be transplanted, repeating this procedure every year until the tree reaches the age of five. The transplant should also be made later, but it will only be enough once every two years. A healthy and well-groomed tree will have about 1.5 meters in height and a dense crown.
In order for the persimmon from the bone to grow properlyand developed, you need to water it and sprinkle it in due time. In summer, due to favorable weather conditions, it is better to put the tree in the garden or on the balcony. The main thing here is to observe the following measures: to protect persimmon from winds, but, at the same time, to provide sufficient sunlight.
Like any growing of fruit-bearing trees,cultivation of persimmons from the stone can not do without fertilizers. Use them (both mineral and organic) should be done every summer, twice a month. As soon as the persimmon leaves fall (this happens in autumn), it becomes a signal that the tree can be brought into the room. Persimmon well tolerates low temperatures, because in winter about 3-4 degrees of heat will be enough to make the tree feel comfortable. Remember that in the winter persimmon should not be watered. It is only necessary to spray the crown regularly.
Remember that the room should besufficiently humid. So, if it is too warm, the plant will need to be sprayed more often. In such conditions, the kidneys should wait a little earlier, already in the February period. If the air temperature is normal, but not high, the kidneys will swell with the arrival of spring. As soon as the first leaves appear, a persimmon from a bone will begin to need additional nutrition - organic fertilizers. The next top dressing should be done after two weeks, with fertilizers first used organic, and then mineral. Do not forget about watering the plant, but in this case the main thing is not to bend the stick, which can lead to decay of the roots.
In advance, we warn that persimmon is notdecorative plant, because in winter it loses its foliage. Therefore, the place for wintering should be thought out in advance, so that the bare tree trunk does not appear in the middle of the room.
