The choice of soil for every tree depends on its specific needs. For example, a strawberry tree (arbutus unedo), needs soil with a lower pH level (4-6.5) is necessary. In general, some trees have minimal soil requirements, and using commercial soil is sufficient. However, it’s essential to consider soil composition, as richer soil can enhance plant performance and promote overall robustness.

The frequency of fertilization for our trees is determined by their individual species and needs. As a general guideline, it is recommended to fertilize ornamental plants approximately 2 to 4 times annually, selecting between granular or water-soluble fertilizers based on the season. For fruit-bearing plants like olives, you may require additional fertilizers beyond the basic ones, such as those containing boron, to address any deficiencies.

The timing of pruning depends on the specific tree species. There are no fixed rules, but rather distinct guidelines for each type. For example, deciduous trees are typically pruned in the winter when they shed their leaves and tree sap isn’t flowing. Olive trees, on the other hand, benefit from pruning in the middle of winter or early spring. Ideally, it’s best to prune them after January, aiming for a timeframe as close to March as possible. It’s advisable to choose periods that are free from frost and rain and to conduct pruning when humidity is low. This helps prevent the development of fungal and bacterial diseases like cycloconium, gray mold, and olive cancer. In contrast, ornamental shrubs can generally be pruned as needed throughout the year.

The watering frequency for a plant can vary significantly and is influenced by several unpredictable factors such as weather conditions (e.g., wind or rain), the current season (summer or winter), and the unique requirements of each plant. Additionally, when a plant is in its early stages of root development, it requires careful attention to prevent overwatering and root rot. Therefore, it’s crucial to assess soil moisture levels, not just at the surface, and adjust watering accordingly.
