Am a real newbie to the Gardening world and need some advice with a pear tree we have inherited with our new house.
We had some pears appear on this tree this year but all didn’t look too healthy, majority of the leaves have black spots on and there is a lot of dead wood on the tree. It was also smothered in Ivy which I have now cleared from the tree. I have found a few websites which imply its infected with Blight but now I am finding it hard to identify a product or method to treat this.
Do I clear the deadwood off and prune the tree and hope it survives or is there a fertilizer which I should spray the tree with.
Any advise suggestions would be very welcome.
