Then again ......? Our tree, of about eighty years old, looked to be getting weaker - poor leaves and smaller, fewer flowers so I asked a local tree surgeon if he felt it was needing his services. He replied "Do you feed it?" I said no and he said to get feeding it - how else could it grow well? I now feed it blood, fish and bone with a good mulch of compost every Spring and it looks very good each year.
