HELP NEEDED WITH MY PLUMS!
Grass is Greener Posts: 1
Evening all, really need some help.
I have a plum tree that is still in it's pot that my son was given for a birthday present. Just returned from a 11 day holiday and the tree isn't looking good. The leaves are brown and easliy removed though the stems are green(ish).
It's entirley my fault as I didn't ask the neighbour for help.
Please help, I have a ten year old boy in tears! I could be a hero again!
All you can do now is keep it watered and hope. Or nip round the local garden centre and surreptitously replace it with one looking as similar as possible and talk about the "miracle cure" you managed to find online.. Ten year olds aren't easily fooled though!
I think its going to be the school hamster story. It died, so you need a surreptitious replacement on the sly.
Buy a self-watering kit, no more problems. you can go away with an easy mind.
