i want to ask about deciduos trees, perhaps any of you guys know about this issue i dealt with, what i’m really confuse is i live in jakarta, indonesia.
in my country there are only 2 season; dry and wet season.
dry: may-september and wet/rainy: october - april
i want to ask about what i have to do with the trees that usually kept in country that have 4 seasons like japan, usa.
i recently bought 2 trees from japan: peach blossom and cherry blossom.
now this trees are quite vigorous, leaves emerging in all branch.
i also add fertilizer.
and what i want to ask in details are:
- when its the time for the leaves to fall off(because theres no fall season in my country), do i need to cut the leaves and leaving stem or cut back to the branch?
- when to take off the fertilizer and when to put it again?
- what kind of fertilizer i must use? i use green king fertilizer now, with npk ratio: 6:5:2
- if i must cut the leaves, when is the best time? or waiting for the flower buds to emerge and cut the leaves?
thank you guys
