what is wrong with my plum tree?

Posted: 23/06/2014 at 12:05

thank you both for the replies.

 dave, you are spot on.  i have looked at  the link, and the photo looks exactly like the things on my tree. i have been removing the damaged pods and foliage as much as i possible, and will now be trying my best to get rid of everything which looks infected. hopefully i will be able to save the tree.

this forum is so helpful !!!

what is wrong with my plum tree?

Posted: 21/06/2014 at 00:10

my plum tree had lots of blossom this year, and it looked healthy, and  after the blossom faded it looked as if it would be covered in bunches of plums. then the leaves started to crinkle up,some of the developing plums became deformed, grew very quickly into what looked like pods and rotted away. now most of the plums which are left are nearly all getting lumpy bits on them, and don't look right. such a shame because over the past few years the plums have been healthy and taste delicious. does anyone know what is wrong, and what i can do to help  get the tree back to normal. i don't know  much about fruit trees, so any advice would be gratefully received

 thanks so much for the quick replies. Edd and nutcutlet  have solved my problem. Lychnis coronaria is what my plant was. sorry about saying it had woody stems, i was trying to remember what it was like, and maybe got it wrong. i also didn't realize it came in so many shades, so i will be looking to buy a few different ones.

i want to buy another plant  but don't know what it is. it grows about .30" tall, has a clump of silvery green leaves at the base, woody stems and i have seen it with either white or magenta flowers, ( with 5 petals, i think). i had a white one, but it was destroyed when workmen put scaffolding base over it, and i haven't got a clue what it is called. any help would be appreciated.




Pound shop plants- any success stories?

Posted: 12/04/2012 at 22:55

i recently bought some plants from poundland and all of them are doing very well despite the fact that 2 days after planting them we had a few days of really cold wintry weather, and the mock orange already has large buds showing. also bought a packet of hollyhock seeds which have all sprouted (24), and are nearly ready to be potted up. so pleased with the bushes, as the soil in my garden is not good, but last year i used miracle gro quite a few times, and it has helped a lot.
