Pear tree

Posted: 06/05/2012 at 20:11

Hi, I planted a conference pear tree 4 years ago in my front lawn, the first year I got around a dozen pears, the last two years have produced nil and it looks likely to be the same this year (all the flowers have now bloomed but all of the fruitlets look weak and as if they will be dropped, as has happened the last 2 years) it has also been shedding a good number of its new young leaves over the last couple of days! what could be the problem? its driving me nuts!

Thanks very much for all the replies, I will try out all of the advice, ie cutting back as Alina suggests, but as mine are Erysimum I will also take cuttings and collect the seeds, all advice much appreciated, cheers

Hi, was wondering if it is possible to cut back unruly leggy looking wallflowers and if so when is best time for this to be done

Thanks very much for your advice regarding lack of water, I started watering my camelia every evening since your advice, it has now started to bloom properly and is looking great, the white powdery substance has also disappeared from the leaves, I will continue to water (when no rain falls) and will apply some mulch to try and help retain moisture in future, cheers

I have a similar problem, I put a bush in last year and it is full of buds two or three have half opened then fell off but most are not opening at all, it also has a white waxy powder on the leaves, which comes off easily enough when you rub it, I have looked on various advice sites but cant find any explanation, anyone have any ideas? Thanks
