    I have 4 Texas Walnut trees.
    The grow very well also & very fast.
    They were 12" 14 years ago & are now about 40ft tall.

    I don't have any fruit trees. Mine are all straight. My wife has a rose bush that is acting a little gay.

    Pecan trees and tannic acid in the leaves can really make your lawn suffer

    I have peach, pear and apple trees, had cherry but one died. They are a pain, constantly spraying some mold or bug, fighting the squirrels and raccoons. Watering, fertilizing... some days I like them, most days not as much.

    Speaking of leaves... got a bumper crop of leaves and acorns this year. Went to fire up the mulcher vac and the boot on the cart is rotted. Have one ordered. Tried the sweeper, like bailing with a thimble.

    3 Weeks ago I planted a couple of Tangerine trees, 8 blueberry bushes, and transplanted to larger containers 4 fig trees.

    The blueberries like acidic soil, have you used some of the acidic fertilizer? have you mulched them with pine needles (pine straw)?

    Mine are still small, planted at the moment in 5 gallon planters, will probably transplant to the "ground" in the fall.
