Hollows in fig tree branch stumps - a problem?

Posted: 12/07/2014 at 22:10

I can only see one but I can imagine the other. I think you should take it back. That dead stumpy bit is a potential site of infection. It will fill up with rain and rot will set in. Maybe if you cut that off and the hole doesn't go back to the main branch it will be OK. But maybe it won't. It's a funny shape as well.

It depends how far it's gone. If the root ballwas very pot bound and dry when you potted it on it may not have taken up water.

emergency treatment for that is to dunk it in a bucket of water til the bubbles stop rising

That shouldn't have upset it at all. Did it dry out at any time? They're don't need a lot of water but they don't want to dry out. Only prolonged heavy rain is enough to keep potted plants going in summer

Hi Dj

Was it not potted when you received it and when was that?

Maybe that would have been good.

But we've just taken a glass of wine for a walk round the garden and that was good too

I had trouble starting those in pots but now I've got them going in the meadow they're spreading beautifully

When you're raising the glass Dove, I'd like Woodforde's Wherry please, a good Norfolk beer. Just a half will be fine.
