What is wrong with my apple tree

Posted: 09/11/2012 at 12:48

The only thing I know of which causes brown streaks in branches of Apple trees is Silver leaf disease. The leaves should have had a silvery sheedn on them before they fell. There is no treatment if it is this.  The tree will die. Hope I am very wrong.

A looks like a Poppy, but not sure.

E could well be an Iris ensata type, but again there are a lot of Irids with that petal formation.

Berry ID please?

Why not go and take some of the orange seed? Sow them now and they germinate in Spring. I have a hedge of them grown from seed like that. We even got an album form too.

I enjoyed reading all the Anna Pavord books, especially The Tulip.

There are not many witers now of Christopher Lloyd.'s type, sadly. And at least he WAS writing from his own experiience.

My son usually buys me a gardening/plant book for Christmas, but this year and last I struggled to find one that was not best described as a 'coffee table' book. Where are the good modern writers?

Sorry Frank, but there are references in the oldest book I have to using Nicotine as an insecticide. Admittedly this was for the professional gardeners at big Houses, but it was easily available to anyone.
