My Cherry Tree Needs Urgent Help! Advice Please...

Just checking - what sort of compost is your cherry tree in? It really needs John Innes No 3 loam-based compost ... and it does get plenty of water doesn't it?

Stone fruits (cherries/plums etc) must not be pruned in the autumn/winter or they are likely to get Silverleaf Disease.

The time to prune cherries is around midsummer - lots of info here

... Been burning in firepit and downsizing in a ruthless fashion ready for the house move! Making the most of the time off I have as starting the new job on the 17th. Not got a date for move yet, could be September could be October or could be a surprise and be end of this month !  trying to be as prepared as possible but I envisage a Dove flying over to help carry things!  ...

Better get Papa Womble on standby to do a double shift just in case - OH and I are away for 10 days from mid Sept!!!

BMam - please don't put words in my mouth or wilfully misinterpret what I said - I said that 'humane management of these populations allows for .... '.

I certainly did not say that all human attempts at management are humane - and please don't patronise me - I'm a country girl born and bred from a family of countrymen and women who can trace our rural roots back many generations and I don't take notice of 'hype' - my views are based on first hand experience.

And before anyone jumps to conclusions about farmers, even back in the 50s and 60s my Pa did not allow the local fox hunts or harriers on his land and although I rode I never hunted.
