I'm not sure why but 3 of my asian persimmons always want to fall over for some reason. I've staked them for a few years but I don't think it's helping. I'm attaching some pictures of my saijo. It's in an area of the backyard that's a bit of a wind tunnel. I can't put up a wind screen because the neighbor wants sunlight there to grow raspberries. We tend to have a bit of wind that kicks up during the night.
I also have a Nikita's gift persimmon and it's not growing like this at all. The trunk growth is thick and it appears to be very sturdy. I've done the same thing to all 4 fruit tree's. Heavy wood chip mulch around them, comfrey, seaberries, strawberries and pretty generous summer watering.
Was staking the wrong thing to do? I haven't pruned them at all because I read that persimmons either don't take well to pruning or don't need to be pruned. Although who knows if that's actually correct with so much differing information on the internet. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
