Struggling with our trees
For a couple of seasons I have had little success with my fruit trees and this year has been no exception.
The main tree to suffer is a plum tree that seems to be able to just about produce leaves which die quite quickly and it doesn’t produce any fruit. It is significantly covered in lichen.
We also have a couple of apple and pear trees but the fruit is covered in black spots and doesn’t look very appealing at all.
Our other tree which is some sort of nut tree had been doing well in previous seasons but this year as soon as the leaves appeared they blackened and fell off.
After a very disappointing season last year I went to the garden centre and was advised to use a winter spray and wrap the trunks of the trees in the sticky tape (can’t remember it’s name) I did this with fairly minimal success.
I am fairly sure the trees have scab but I am not sure being very new to looking after fruit trees.
I am very eager to help my trees get better and very eager to take any advice, I am worried about them and not sure they will survive another season.
I have only put up one photo, as a new user I am restricted, this is of the nut tree. I will put up more photos when I can.
Thank you in advance.
