Hi-I have a cherry tree and two pear trees which are weeping/oozing amber yuck.The cherry tree leader branch is badly affected and has it all over.The pear tree is baldy along the branches and has leaves at end.They are amidst apple and rowan trees that are getting black spots on leaves which I reckon is spread of blight.I am thinking of cutting down the two bad trees altogether and treating the rest with a spray of copper sulphate bordeaux mixture (if I can get it).-I have a limited horticultural background so would welcome expert advice; (-is it best to cut loses and rid site of 2 trees/best way to do this/will copper sulphate nip tne blight progress in other trees?) Hope you can help.Thank you

Hi I have two buxus trees -I got them around Christmas and didn't transplant them to a larger planting  vessel (guilty!).-They have acquired new growth with the onset of milder weather but they also have white loose powder on the leaves *not like mildew more like talc)-Does this harbour a pest? -does it need treatment?-any ideas what this might be and how I should treat it? -Thank you.
