This idea looks & sounds great. I was looking for something new to try so will def be giving this a go, just wish i'd found it earlier in the year.

r the apple trees in pots aswell?

I didnt get any pears of my well established pear tree this year for the 1st time but other gardeners have been saying this year was not a good year for fruit trees... otherwise.. r u feeding them enough & with the right food.. I was feeding my potted fruit trees with regular miracol grow which turns out isnt right for fruit trees... ive been advised bonemeal with a top up of potash at start of season..

patio (pot) cherry tree

Hello. I get plenty of blossom & cherries ( if i can beat the birds to them) & I've looked up canker, which I've seen on my sisters apple & pear trees but this is different, I thought I figured out what was wrong last summer.. cant remember what it was called but it suggested the plant was too hot so I mooved the pot into some shade & kept it there this summer which helped a little but still oozed sap..

I have thought about just getting a new one but I've nursed this tree for a few years now, it was one of my 1st fruit trees, its not done too well since a big fat pigeon sat on one of the main branches & broke it. I'm a little reluctant to let it die..

Has anyone had or have a patio pot grown cherry tree, i brought this specaily for the patio has i didnt want it getting too big but this summer & last years summer it lost its leaves early and what looked like sap laeaking out of tiny holes all over the bark. I looked at every cm of it & couldnt find any pest of any kind, I moved it into shade incase it was getting too much sun but it didnt seem to help, then some branches started to die back. I still got fruit of it but its not looking very healthy & am now worried it might not make it through the winter.

Any suggestions on how to save my cherry tree??
