sickly apple tree

Gerrie Nagle asked 14 years ago

newly purchased Elstar apple tree – in pot – taken home and soaked in bucket of water overnight as it appeared very dry. Following day the leaves look curled and the new growth has wilted. The second apple tree ‘braeburn’ looks a bit sad also but the morello cherry tree looks fine – all 3 treated the sam way. Will the apple trees come around again? thx for your help.

Very likely that the damage was done before the soaking. Plant the trees, if not already done, and they should recover. water heavily once each week until new growth appears.
