Thanks for that Buttercup. I'm definitely going to grow something else there but in the meantime I will try tidying up the trees and I've got plenty of compost so I shall see how I get on.
Yesterday I cut back an extremely overgrown shrub that I have inherited only to find the surrounding trees are all brown and dried out at their bases where the shrub had been. Can I do anything to bring those parts back to life?
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.
