Poorly looking plum tree

Posted: 14/08/2012 at 13:52

I have a 3 year old victoria plum tree and it's looking very poorly at the moment.  I noticed that the leafs were covered in whitefly/greenfly after all the rain we had and sprayed it with a soapy mixture.  Now the leafs are curling up and looking dead and the whole tree seems to be invaded by fly's as well as whitefly.  Can anyone suggest what to do, pruning and spraying wise so I can prevent this happening next year.

Hi

I need some advice my Victoria plum tree is looking very sorry at the moment.  A few weeks ago I noticed the leafs were covered in greenfly/whitefly, so I sprayed with soapy water.  Now the a lot of leafs and turned blacked and withered, my fruit yield looks not good too.  I'm wondering what I should do to prevent this happening next year.  The tree is 3 years old now and I'm thinking should I prune it?

Hi I was watching Gardeners World on friday and saw Monty Don using some sort of metal hook to pin down new strawberry plants on runners.  I've been looking everywhere for these but with no luck.  Can anyone tell me their offical name and possible suppliers.

Kind regards

I've been given a greenhouse and am looking to reglaze it with polycarbonate sheets.  There are a lot of sites on the internet, has anyone bought the sheets off the web if so would you mind sharing the supplier.  Also is it worth buying the ready cut to size sheets, I had a nasty accident with a stanley knife a couple of years ago!
