Hi all.  Not a very experienced gardener so please bear with me.  I've got a mature fruit bearing Cherry tree on the corner of my lawn and am now getting multiple (dozens) of "mini" trees forcing their way up through my lawn.  I'm loath to have the tree removed so what, if any, is the solution.

Thanks for that and apologies for not replying sooner.  So - it's fungicide and a good dose of food for the compost then!!! 

Getting better treatment thn me!!

 

Thanks again

 

Chris

Here we go.  Tree seems to be alive right up to the top. There are still green leaves.  It is in a partly sheleterd position (alongside a Magnolia tree).  No signs of anything obvious on the leaves as per the photo's. I watered it fairly frequently during the summer but have not fed it. for info' it's a Pyril's conference and is around 3ft tall.  I'll attach a photo and add two others in separate posts as I'm not sure how many I can get on each post.

Have tried to upload a photo but no joy.  Maybe the file is too big.  I'll try to do it via Photobucket.

Recently retired and now getting to grips with my garden.  Can anyone tell me what the problem is with a small (potted) pear tree I'm trying to grow.  Almost all the leaves hve completely shrivelled up, almost as if they have been burned.

Can i post photo's on here, if so, I can show you what I mean.
