Having fun in the hills!

Talking about feijoas....my four trees stopped producing fruit a couple of years ago.

Somebody told me that the way to fix that problem is to ruthlessly prune the trees and they would start producing again.

So about four months ago, my neighbour and I got stuck into the trees on my place and also into his own feijoa trees, which weren't very good producers.

We were pretty ruthless and cut everything back almost to the trunks.

I haven't taken much notice of my own trees since we butchered them, but half-an-hour ago, I headed down the back of the section to chuck out a whole lot of stale bread for the birds and noticed that not only has a huge amount of new growth occured on the four feijoa trees, but also that they have gone absolutely ballistic producing fruit and the ground beneath the trees is now covered in fallen feijoas, with plenty more still on the trees yet to drop.

So it looks like the trick of ruthlessly pruning feijoa trees when they stop producing actually works really well.
