Hello and thank you in advance

I have a fruit Cherry tree which has provided us with some wonderful large sized Cherries (that's if we get to them before the birds) The tree is approx 4ft high and purchased 3 years ago. Last year I noticed the bark is splitting and oozing a golden sap, It's worse this year could you tell me what could be causing this to happen?

I have to get rid of a tree that is really no good, I have purchased a new tree but on small rootstock, intend growing in the ground rather than a pot, how far from the original tree should I plant it. the garden is small.

I have just signed up. I wondered how and where any solution/proposed resolutions to problems are posted?

I have a small orchard with Victoria plum trees, and any I replace seem to be getting canker quickly. Isn't there anything I can do to reverse the problem? Are there any plum varieties which are resistant to canker?

I have found that a good dousing of bordeaux mix on the tree branches in the spring, before flowering, and a good splosh around the trunk up to 1.5 metres high, seems to help. I picked this up when in France a couple of years ago.

I have 2 Apples and a pear, several other trees and shrubs arround. The pear has Canker and has had FOR YEARS! it has never spread or reduced the number of delicious pears we have every year.

All were planted over 30 years ago. Am I just lucky?
