Sawfly on Cherry Trees

Posted: 26/07/2016 at 14:46

I have three cherry trees (mature, over 12 years) in the garden all of which have been attacked and devastated by sawfly, I think. The leaves are mottle with brown spots and the leaves fall off, cherries shrivel and the trees, which should look at their best now, are looking leafless and lifeless. One of the trees is short enough to spray (I think Pyrethrin) but the others are far too tall. Has anyone out there any suggestions? I am loathe to cut them down, but they look ghastly and are very sick.

I planted them in POTS not posts (I should learn to type )

Sorry I should have been clearer . I kept them as described above for approx 3 weeks before planting them in post and leaving in the greenhouse while it snowed. They do not look very well now, and unlike the otehrs i mentioned, have no shoots etc. .

 

I THINK that the shrubs came from Thompson Morgan and were a GW offer in the magazine.

Can anyone remember exactly?

I ordered and received the Alan Titchmarsh roses offer last December and planted them as instructed - they were bare roots, soI planted them at an angle in a mix of soil and a little (not a lot, to avoid root burn) compost. Thery over-wintered in the green house (not heated). I came to plant them and they are looking VERY sad, brown and rather not alive, whereas others, now in pots are doing famously.

Any advice?
