Hi Mike, I inherited this tree 3 years ago so I don't know the history but since we've been here there's been a bumper crop each year but the pears are inedible.
Thanks Flowering Rose, when is the best time to spray?
I have a pear tree that suffers from Entomosporium leaf spot. What's the best way to treat it? Either naturally or chemically.
Is there anybody else out there who maybe has used a chemical spray? I'd like to look at both options.
Nice one Edd.
Ok Verdun, I might give it a go. I'll see how the weather looks over the next week. Thanks.
That's great Edd. I'm a bit of a composting fiend myself but wasn't aware I can create so many castings. I'll check it out.
Thanks Edd. I'll check out where I can get the castings from.
I'll look at both options. Natural is preferable but I have to be realistic. The tree is approx 7-8m high so it's a huge job and I want the most effective results.
That's brilliant thank you. Just one thing, as it's so big I'm gonna have to cut some of it back otherwise I can't get close to the roots but how far can I go?
I have an enormous cherry tree that produces lots of lovely fruit but a lot of the fruit includes a little white worm that I assume has been laid by a particular fly/insect that I need to get rid of. So, can someone give me the rundown of what I need to do and when?
