Guava

We have a small Guava (at this point in time) in which the roots have gone through the plastic pot and into the ground. We have some doubts. One is how should we bury it in the ground from the pot that it is yet in? Two, will it have long, large and strong roots that will eventually crack walls or foundations?

As long as the tree gets enough water and has enough room, it should not be a danger to the foundation.

As for planting it, you can either try to dig up the roots and then break the pot off the rootball (which will be best for the plant but may be difficult to do) or you can cut the roots that are in the ground and then simply replant the tree (this will increase the chances of transplant shock).

How to Start Guava Bush From Seed

I have seeds from a couple of guavas that grow here and was wondering if I dry out the seeds prior to planting them in a pot, or can I plant them in a small pot directly from the fruit?

There are a few diseases that can cause this. This article has more information on them, so that you can see if your tree has some other symptoms and match them up:

What Causes a Strawberry Guava to Drop Its Leaves?

What would cause a strawberry guava tree to suddenly drop its leaves? I live in southern FL and the tree had been doing very well. Now it looks like its dying. Leaves turning yellow and falling to the ground. Help!

ANSWERS

This can be caused by many, many things. Most of which would need an onsite examination of the tree to determine for sure. At a most basic level, I would recommend treating the tree with both a fungicide and a pesticide. This would treat a large portion of the things that may be wrong with the tree.

If you need a more specific diagnosis, then you should either contact your local extension service or a local arborist or tree expert to have them examine the tree. With a visual examination, they should be able to give you better advice as to how to treat the specific problem.

Pineapple Guava Not Fruiting

I have a new pineapple guava container plant. I have had it for 3 months. It has flowered heavily twice but not getting any to turn into fruit. What am I doing wrong?

ANSWERS

It is likely a pollination issue, especially if it's been unseasonably hot in your area as this makes it more difficlt for pollinating insects. You may need to hand pollinate.

I have same question regarding pineapple guava not thriving. Mine are in full sun, and have been planted a year now--all are on drip system. Only a few have lightly flowered and none have borne fruit. Also, the color of leaves are ugly light gray-green with yellowing on some leaves.

How Do I Care for a Guava Tree Which Has Been Cut Off at the Mid Section?

All the branches were cut off where the branches start. It is a small tree planted last fall. The branches were full of fruit. Currently, I put them in a vase with Miracle Grow but don’t know if this will help. I am wondering if the the tree is still alive, as it still has the stem in the ground. Any ideas to save the tree? Thank you.

ANSWERS

The tree may regrow the branches from below where it was cut, and is very likely still alive, though it is hard to tell if it will regrow branches. But you cannot reattach limbs that have been removed. You may want to start over with a new tree as it will take some time for the tree to recover, if at all. I am sorry.
