Fruit tree pruning

Posted: 03/03/2015 at 11:18

Ellie ,just to add to the bad news ,before you decide just check how the full leafed tree might effect the greenhouse for light etc,maybe this was the reason for the dismemberment that Dove talked about, also removing and planting new might be good,  left in cut off trunks can make nice features for birdbaths etc if a  full dig is too much at this time. good luck Ell  Suns about to show erein Muns Hopfully

Can my dying rhododendron be saved?

Lena N rather than sling it why not cut it back and give it a chance to recover, cant hurt it and you might get lucky,as Verdun says you might have to cross more than fingers but sometimes it works nothing to lose, if or when it does get dry enough to need water give it a crushed  aspirin. B Lucky,
