Patio Pear and Plum

Posted: 26/06/2016 at 19:44

I have had a patio pear tree and plum tree now for 2 years.  Still no fruit. What am I doing wrong?

To prune or not to prune

I have a patio plum tree  and a patio pear tree each are in a pot and I bought them last year.  I had thought I would get fruit this year. They seem to both have gone to growth - no flowers therefore no fruit.  Should I cut them back and if so by how much?

I have a Rhododendron in a pot which flowers beautifully from early June.  This year the leaves are drooping and the flower buds (of which there are many) are just not opening.  It is not lack of water as the pot is watered regularly.  Any advice please?  It is a sorry looking specimen!!

No I didn't prune as it isn't really that big.  How much do you suggest I prune this year?

My Kilmarnock Willow had beautiful big catkins last year when I bought it. This year it seems to be going straight into leaf with no catkins. Any ideas why this had happened?

Doesn't sound good !!  The leaves that are starting to appear look healthy enough just no flowers

I split them after flowering last year.

I usually have lots of Snowdrops at this time of year.  This year the leaves have been slow to come through and I have very little flower.  What has gone wrong?

Lawn Problem

Thanks.  The lawn has been fed and aerated and has been looking good until recently.  I will try now to sort out the Red Thread although I was concerned that it might be a waste of time as my neighbour's lawn is more Red Thread than grass and I read on the link that the spores are air borne !!
