Help with my plum and pear trees needed
:confused: I recently bought a new plum tree and planted it about a month and a half ago, while there are new leaves on the trunk of the tree no leaves have come out on the branches... do I need to prune the branches for the leaves to grow and if so how much? Also, my 2 yr old Asian pear has leaves on perhaps half of its branches do the bare ones need to be pruned? My Bartlett pear has tons of leaves!! Help!!
Need help with my 2 plum trees also!
I planted two plum trees (Bruce and Methley) in early - mid March and there are only leaves on the trunk and for the past two weeks are all wilted. I did use some Miracle growth soil to mix under the roots... could that be the problem? I have two pear trees, a necturine tree not far from these and they are growing like crazy, along with a fig tree and it's doing great too. I do not want to loose these two plum trees and wondering what I can do to help them? My girl friend told me I needed to push all the mulch away from around the plant so they could get more air??? (Never heard that before.. but I'm trying it). Any suggestions would be welcomed! I read somewhere about some plum wilt disease and am hoping they do not have that. Thanks so much!!!
