About this deal

But what about a situation in which you have just moved house and you’ve found a totally neglected fruit tree in the new garden? What should be done? I'm planning on having a drive put in, however, there is an established cherry blossom tree nearby and I will have to cut away an area 2 metres from the tree. How can I do this without damaging the roots/tree? I would be very grateful for any advice. Thanks Bill replies... I would like to ask for further clarification. The tree and the others have experienced the stress of reduction of size (no more than a third each year for four years) plus a recent drought and one season of a severe infestation of tent caterpillars. This tree is unfortunately placed in front of my house, so the appearance is a priority with this specific tree. You have to balance the risk of waiting till the summer months to prune your Cherry Tree against one, or even both of the large limbs which are hanging over the road - breaking off and causing damage.

Arbrex About us – Arbrex

You will need to use a slow release balanced fertiliser Vasanthi and one of the popular brand products is Vitax Q4 which contains trace elements as well as the main nutrients. For more information on Vitax Q4 log onto www.vitax.co.uk You can also use Grow More which is also widely used or Fish Blood and Bone Meal. I have a small cherry tree and a number of the branches are dying off. There is a mossy type growth basically spread randomly over most of the branches which I tend to scrape off, how can I treat it Bill? Thank you. Bill replies... You can bring the height of the tree down, provided this is done gradually over a number of years. This operation should be carried out any time in August towards the end of the summer. NEVER during the winter months. Always seal large wounds with either Arbrex or Heal and Seal or similar wood healing compounds. I have a 25 ft old cherry tree that produces only a few cherries. I don't think it has ever been pruned and is pyramid shaped. There are 2 main limbs but they are almost vertical. I would like to get some fruit and "top" the tree if possible. Can I do this now (February) or do I have to wait till the summer and how should I prune it. Bill replies... I have planted my cherry tree last June, and this year it started to flower. I want to know what find of feed should I use for it to grow healthy and how many times should I feed it during the season? Bill replies...Bleeding occurs due to the pressure of sap within the tissues that conduct water and sugars around the plant. There is a spring flowering cherry in the garden next door to us. It is over 25 foot high and is some 8 foot from the wall of our house. The roots have already caused the paving on our side path to lift. I am concerned about how it might affect or be affecting the foundations of our house. I would be grateful if you could say if it is likely to cause damage to the foundations. Bill replies... One thing you can say about this product. It works just as it is supposed to do. No more and no less. It's nice and runny and it sets firmly, I've used it for years to seal tree damage, grafting and pruning. Never liked the applicator business end, preferring to smear with a finger.

Your suggestions make good sense to me, but I would like to ask if because the tree has been stressed four years in a row, would it be less traumatic if I took off only part of the selected trunk, plus one top branch of the preferred trunk this year, and then remove the full selected trunk one year later?” This possible gentler approach is shown in the diagram below. You would Jobie be far better using a soil base compost such as John Innes No 2 or, you could use a mixture of a multi purpose compost and John Innes compost. It is important that until your trees get established to keep an eye on the watering and you will also need to feed occasionally throughout the summer months with a liquid fertiliser. If you intend to plant your trees out in the garden you would be far better doing this late autumn when the soil is still warm and the trees are dormant.In this situation, the best way to attain a complete reversal is not by removing lots of little bits of wood, but by opening the tree right up by removing four or five large branches, so that the sunshine can penetrate into the centre of the tree. Seal the wounds with Arbrex, feed the tree with organic matter, water the tree in dry periods and you will be amazed at the results. Be patient and give the tree at least two years to mend its ways. A tree with a double trunk Cherry Trees come in all shapes and sizes Pam and quite a number of the larger species are very vigorous and the roots which are surface rooting, can be very troublesome if planted near a lawn. A lot will depend on what variety your Cherry Tree is. You mention your tree is conical shaped which suggests that it could be one of the dwarfer varieties and be far less troublesome. If you are still worried you could actually plant your Cherry Tree into a large container to offset this root problem. On small branches and fruiting spurs: The infection may girdle the stem and kill it in a single season. The bark often flakes off infected smaller twigs I have been noticing many cherry trees dropping their leaves early this year. Can this be due purely to the weather as on closer inspection all the buds are healthy. The leaves are yellowing between the leaf veins and also curling so their edges meet. They also seem to be abcising well. It just seems like premature autumn behaviour. What are your views? Bill replies... Hi Bill I have a flowering dwarf cherry tree which lives in a pot. The leaves have holes and the plant is spindly. What shall I do? Bill replies...
