Pear tree

Posted: 07/05/2012 at 11:29

I had the same problem last year with my conference pear tree.It is on my allotment in Carrickfergus N.I.so its pretty much open to the elements.This year i have concentrated more on feeding it from the end of February to try and make the tree generally stronger.Ive feed it with bone meal and at the beginning of March gave a it a mulch of horse manure which i forked in .Results so far a healthier and stronger looking tree and plenty of flowers. So i would agree with Alina W about feeding .Good Luck.

kate1123  Iasked about rats in the compost bin,the advice that they gave was to put chicken wire around it and bury about 6 inches into the ground.Hope this helps.
