Plum tree prob

  Thanks Edd, I think you are spot on with your diagnosis.

  Its a bit wet to go do anything about it today, but will go tomorrow and strip bad fruit   and cut out affected wood, then burn the lot. I also keep a peach tree in a pot in the   greenhouse till start of June as it suffers from peach tree curl if put outside before.

Figs grow better fruit if roots are kept contained in a tight space.
