Leaves on Pear Tree are going black and crinkled ?
I have a south facing wall, 1 m high, about 6 m wide. It faces a border about 10 metres away with 2 birch trees and 3 snowy mespilus + shrubs, so gets dappled shade.. Would nectarines or peaches grow on the wall, if not any other fruit eg pear.
I have and my father before me, tried to deal with pear midge on a very old pear tree in our garden (over 100 years old). The pear tree flowers profusely and produces 'pearlets' but many if not most of them have been invaded by pear midge which rots out the centre and the 'pearlet' turns black drops off and dies. Is there anythjing I can spray with to prevent this happening in the future. When the pears come to maturity they are wonderful and store very well.
I bought my sister a pear tree 5 years ago. It blossoms every year then leaf curls and fruit buds go black. She has never had a pear.
hi gerry a friend of mine over the road gave me some pears he had grown perfect on the outside but when you cut into them they were soft and decaying in the middle a few were ok but the majority were bad inside any ideas what happened thanks franksenior
Fed all fruit trees with potash in March but8 year old pear tree that bore over 300 pears last year and 6 year old peach tree bore 6 fruit last year have now dropped all fruit this year. What can I do now to prevent this happening again (or is it weather related - I don't think this is frost damage)
Hi Gerry, The leaves on my tomato plant have started to droop badly. What can I do to bring it back to health?
I hope you might be able to answer a question that I have. I Am attaching photos of something that has appeared all over the branches of a greenhouse Pear tree in the last week. We do have a lot of ants and woodlice in greenhouse and maybe there is a connection. Do you have any idea what these things are?
What causes hard woody bits in pear fruit? How to avoid?
A young pear try that I purchased in Spring and planted up immediately always had droopy foliage. I assumed that was a varietal habit. However, in recent days it has developed black and brown marks on the foliage and the droop has become more prounced. I am concerned it might be fireblight as it is planted among 25 more apple, pear, plum and cherry trees. Is my diagnosis correct (see attached photo)? Will it spread? Shoud I remove the tree and burn it? The variety is William Bon Chretrien.
I have a number of pear trees in my garden which last year showed signs of pear scab and a blackening of the leaves. I have looked in various places for a suitable spray but have been unable to locate one. I note Jeyes Fluid is recommended in some circumstances but only when trees are dormant. Is it too late to spray for this year? If not what should I use and where can I get it? (I have tried a number of garden centers but they only had insecticides).
A builder next door has dug up part of my border, in which there is a 250+ year old pear tree growing. He appears to have cut through half the roots to one side of the main tree trunk. What can I do to ensure the tree will not die. It still provides fruit regularly every year?
Am I right in saying that pears won't fruit in Galway? Or it dependable on the spring ie frost timing re buddingAlso should I prune my pear tree now as its gone a bit wild?
