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..
