Apple tree problem - advice needed

Posted: 13/06/2013 at 09:19

Sorry to be really thick (I really am a novice)  but what do you mean by 'spur'? Is that the whole thin branch bit? Also will it cause any damage to the tree doing this in summer?

Thanks Digger. Blossom wilt is what I guessed at. Looks like I have my weekend work cut out then

Our apple tree (don't ask me what it is, all I know is that its cooking apple) has started to get some die back on some of the branches. It seems to be spread randomly throughout the tree. It started after the blossom finished so I was wondering if it was blossom wilt? Or could it be fireblight? Whatever it is, what on earth do I do about it? It seems impossible to prune it all out of the tree as it is so random and not always at the end of a branch but in the middle. Also I couldn't reach the top of the tree! No idea if this tree as had it before as have only recently inherited it, so to speak

Wow! You lot are clever Looking at more google images of the 1st and 2nd I'd say they are exactly what they are. 


As for the 3rd pic, the pink flowered one, the plant is really small, about 18 inches high in total with small flowers about the size of a penny... if that helps.

Hi, we have lots of plants and shrubs that we can't identify. We have managed to find out what many of them are but some are still eluding us. They are probably really common and embarassingly easy to identify.. but not to me! 


Can anyone help?
