Victoria Plumb - query over fruit

Posted: 23/05/2014 at 19:23

That's the effect of one of the Taphrina fungi.

I get that on my Prunus padi but as I'm not looking for fruit I've never looked for a cure.

That's not very helpful, sorry

What aspect of the flowers is hawthorn like? Is it the colour, the shape of the individual flowers, the way the flowers are arranged?

Are the leaves dark or light green. Are they shaped like hawthorn, long and thin, short and wide, divided into lobes.

There are a lot of shrubs and trees and although we're good we don't do ESP

You need a marginal plant, Lysimachia won't put up with 8inches of water. A nice damp soil at the edge and it will go like mad

I think this will be taphrina, there are several species that affect various trees.
