canker or not?

Posted: 18/05/2014 at 14:28

Can anyone help please?  I have a problem with one of our fruit trees. I'm not sure if it's a plum or it maybe an apricot. We've only been here 1 year and I don't remember seeeing any fruit last year, was too busy! Noticed it was losing it's leaves. Thought it may be stressed as the water table is very high here and thought it might be waterlogged. It seems to have die back and the leaves have lots of small holes in them. Also spotted a small amount of gum oozing from a couple of the smaller banches. Cut some small branches back and the wood seems to be clean. Is it canker? What should I do next? Have put some photos up to help with diagnosis!

Hi. I've just dug up and split my day lilies and replanted them. They still have some green tops. Should I cut these off to let the plants settle or just leave them to die with rest?

Thanks

Thanks for that. I need to give it a bit of a prune. Because of where it's situated it can't get any bigger than it is now, that's why I toyed witht the idea of moving it. What about cuttings? There are some nice looking non-flowering shoots there I could take if it's the right time?

Hi. I have an oak leafed hydrangea which has been lovely. Can anyone please tell me when I should prune it and by how much? Also, if I wanted to move it of take cuttings when would be a good time?

Thanks. Hope someone can help.
