Its sounds like just  a bit of sap has escaped .if you pruned with clean tools and did a clean cut ,it will be alright but just as insurance take a cutting.

I don't put and food waste as in dinner left overs in the bin as this attracts vermin .I drown my  by putting them in  a bucket of water and making a feed .(the seeds and roots destroyed)for the flowers along with my seaweed and comfrey brew.

planting trees in clay soil

I have just moved my pear tree and it was in very wet soil ,so put it with a bit of mixture of gravel and soil(and compost) and  trod the soil well down and water each day for a while even thou the ground is sodden. you can grow fruit trees in pots as long as you remember to water well so they should be alright until if or when it dries out.

here in the west ,that is my husband who grows them by the score, waits till they are inch high and stand a good chance against slugs and snails and when the frost looks like it wont be back, they are pretty tough thou, mind they drink  a lot of water, so don't plant near other veggie or flowers that need lots of water or walls.

Gardeners who love their feline friends

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 19:48

I love cats as much as my garden and they do very little damage to anything.The pond I protect with dead pyracanthia and not even my husband will touch it and the bird food is above and out of their reach .I have to say they that they catch the rats and often sit staring and waiting to pounce on it.Also very good company alas my cat died some years ago but visiting cats and animals are welcome .
