leaf curl on fruit tree

Posted: 06/07/2014 at 21:50

I was just saying this to my dad.

I planted these 3 small trees 3 years ago but for the last year i have not watered them.

Im a new gardener and didn't think i needed to water my trees like i do my plants.

Theres defiantly no bugs on the tree so im going to water them heavily tomorrow and regularly from now on....

I just checked with magnifying glass and there's defenatly  no aphids on any leaves but may be if they left in early June i wouldn't see them anyway. If it is Aphids and they have gone maybe i just cut off the infected stuff and give it some food and water???

No Aphids or any bugs

The leaves seem crispy and are black in places.

They look like they have been cooked in the oven.

I have a fruit tree of unknown, i think plum and the leaves are shriveling as the grow.

Its a young tree, only 2 years in the ground. I have the same kind of thing on an apple tree.

Ive been scratching and scraping around the  Dahlia areas and all but 1 of the 15 plants in the ground seem to have new shoots. HUZZZZAR...

1 seems to have completely vanished. Shame as it was a lovely large red and white...oh well...

The ones in pot i got as miniature plants also seem to have gone too, but im not to bothered.

The Eraza seems to be giving me the edge on the slug vs flower 3rd world war.

Im quite happy about the situation.

The chemical warfare has already began on the front garden and is holding off the enemy.

i haven't put any pellets down in the rear garden locations, i think i will tonight.

If there's nothing by the weekend i think ill have a gentle dig about to see.....Am i to late to plant new tubers if there's nothing under the surface??

Hi. My dahlias in my front north facing garden are starting to pop their heads up so I'm very happy about that however the many that grew in the south facing rear garden don't seem to be. I have a few other miniature s in pots and some around my pond. Nothing there either. I know I'm lucky as they usually will not survive but last winter was very mild where I live in SE kent. I had no frost... I need to know whether they Will grow or if I need to get more tubers in asap. Also Will the ones in the front be more prolific on their second year? Any advice is Good advice R
