In modern Russia, it is already possible and not to notice the grandparents who travel to the country or garden. The time when all the polls worked on the ground and “lifted virgin lands” passed. Now young people are focused on making money and on mastering “mental professions”. And the question: “Who will go to the cottage today to water the tomatoes?” In many families remains unanswered. But in the country not only tomatoes, but also strawberries, apricots, cherries and cucumbers, which are then all with such pleasure they consume.
Today you can intuitively guess how to spud, water and transplant vegetables and fruits. This work can be entrusted to an inexperienced novice, for example, grandchildren. But the care of trees, flowers and pest control will have to do yourself. What will you do dear ladies if you see a bear - a small insect eating the roots of plants? For an unprepared modern man who only saw monsters in fantastic horror films is a lot of stress. And what decision will come to your bright head, if suddenly a pear, which you planted and watered with such love, suddenly does not give fruit? You no longer need to cut strawberries, but water is much more serious. Now and see, why not pear fruit.
The reasons why the pear does not bear fruit
The queen pear itself is a very ancient plant, it came from a prehistoric era and does not have a clearly established homeland. The first cultivation of pear dates back to 1000 BC.
Pear is a universal fruit from which you can do anything from face masks to meat sauces. And natural a pear grown on your own garden is a double plus. No preservatives, no impurities, not transported from another country and has always been under your tireless control. So is it worth fighting for a pear tree growing in your country house? The answer is definitely yes.
The main reasons why the pear does not give fruit:
- Pear can not boast of its frost resistance. In winter, the frost is especially hard with roots, possibly at the beginning of winter. This affects the fertility of the tree.
- The pear does not tolerate the transplant of trees and with insufficient care can die.
- A pear tree requires both attention and a good basis - soil. Your pear will feel great on fertile and loose soils, but on the poor and overmoistened it is not the place.
- Increased acidity of the soil can badly affect the fruit, so the pear must be fertilized. Humus, superphosphate, potassium chloride - three powerful assistants for the development and growth of the tree.
- Some varieties of pears can bloom for 15 or even 20 year, there is a need for replanting. Therefore, if you do not see the result, proceed.
- Trees must be pollinated by bees. All varieties of pears are not pollinated by their own pollen. Therefore, plant one branch of a pollinated tree to your pear and the bees will take it for “their own”, which means that the fruits will soon appear.
- Another cause of tree barreness is its wildness. You can get a defective sapling - a wild game, which can not bear fruit.
- If you want to get the harvest on time, do not overfeed and do not care too much for the pear. It will begin to accumulate resources and “perekhet” fruit in time or at all. This does not mean that it should be kept in Spartan conditions. Just do what you need and no more.
- Or vice versa, you have it very badly - hare attacks, full water roots, etc.
- Plant a pear on the bright side so that it has enough sun.
How to plantpearand care for her?
As you may have guessed, pear care is not easy. And before you bite off a piece of juicy fruit, you need to take care of a lot.
Caring for a pear is almost the same as for an apple tree. Before planting, it is necessary to abundantly feed the soil with fertilizers, and in the process of growth do not forget to thin out small semi-skeletal branches, as well as dry or damaged by scab.
- It is better to plant a pear on hills and slopes, there the roots have the opportunity to go deep into the ground, then the crown of the tree will become big and fruitful.
- It is better to remove the early fruits a little underripe, so that they ripen in your window-sill already 4 - 5 days. Then they will be tastier and juicier.
Any pear must go a long way before it begins to produce fruit. Any fruit tree needs human participation and help. If you have already decided that a pear is a place in your garden and your life, then do not go back down. The hardest part is to get started. A sapling, then an adult tree, tasty fruits - it's worth it. But here another small problem arises - to lure their households to the dacha, so that they can work nicely. By the way, about how to persuade people to their point of view is excellent Dale Carnegie. So let's summarize. In order for you to eat a lot of fresh and canned pears, you will need: a book on the psychology of manipulation, high-quality seedling, good fertilizers, and of course love and care. Good luck to you, your garden and garden.
