It could do. As for which spray to use I don't know if there is a particular one as I have never treated it but would have thought somekind of systemic would work. I take it this is a small tree if you are considering doing this.

Could you be overwatering and feeding it too much? Try being a little more mean and ignore it in the summer. They do like quite dry and arid conditions.

Hi folks, can you name these please :)

Not so much saving money as saving energy...when confronted with an old allotment or any large area you want to plant in that is overgrown, mow, strim then cover with dampened newspaper, cardboard and mowings and leave for a month or so. No weed seeds can reach the covered soil, the annuals weeds will die, the top will rot giving you better soil and all your left with is the weakened perennial weeds! Hardly any digging needed
