In a nutshell the reason why these "bargain" packs should be ignored

Just received a plant today that I intend to divide into at least 6 units.  £7 including delivery!  Next year they will each be the equal to the plant received today.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Often I found original plants struggled....e.g. Choisya sundance...but the resultant plants from cuttings thrived.  I decided it was because my conditions were different and plants resisted new sitution.  Cuttings raised plants were accustomed to my conditions from the start

vigorously growing pear tree not fruiting

Posted: 27/05/2015 at 20:57

Chicken chaser....a few things.  Pears need other pollinators.  Also need pruning.....summer pruning....to induce fruiting spurs rsther than growth.  Your riich manure mulches are fine but they encourage vigour.  Combined with pruning it will be good.

last summer I summer pruned a pear in a friend's garden.....it has not fruited since planted few years ago.  I was there on Tuesday and the tree is now laden with embryonic pears.  

What could this be?
