    hi AEE,

    Pears are less able to withstand drought conditions so watering them is a must

    although pears a less prone to pets and diseases, But one exception must be pointed out that birds such as bullfinches find the fruit buds more attractive than apples.

    feeding grow-more ideal use librel use scatters on the surface and worked in twice a year, beginning growing season and late autumn. my favorite is seaweed extract fertilizer from good Garden centers a inner capfull per gallon of water poured at the base once a week will ensure it gets all the goodness and nutrients it needs .

    A Book called the Fruit expert by Dr G Hessayon sold in many good garden centers or from good retailers. have fun image
