Hi thank you very much for your response. It is actually in a hard standing on the drive, therefore I wondered if perhaps it may also not have received enough water this year it only has a metre square at its base to gain nutrients and water. We have had it for 10 years and been stunning up until last year. Next door has also planted two trees very close to it, an Ash and a Fig.
I think we will cut away the hard standing and give it a good Potassium feed.
