Bayer Garden Arbrex Seal & Heal
About this deal
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 Quite a number of trees have been dropping their leaves early this year Jason due to this year's contrasting weather conditions. We had a dry spring an extremely wet and cold summer and during the autumn time again quite dry and warm and I am sure that it is these contrasting conditions which is causing premature leaf fall.
BBC - Lancashire - Nature - Ask the gardener: Cherry trees
Normally, the sap of deciduous plants falls in autumn to early winter, as the plants lose their leaves and become dormant. Many deciduous trees and shrubs are best pruned while dormant and bleeding isminimised at this time.My cherry tree is eaten alive every year after the flowers fall. What can I do to stop it?

I have a fruiting cherry tree and a plum tree. I would like to keep them in a 5 LT plastic pot for now, so what is the best soil to plant them in? Bill replies...You will be able to transplant your Cherry Tree Yvonne and the time to do this is in the Autumn when your Cherry is dormant but the soil will still be quite warm. You must ensure when lifting your tree to dig out a good sized root ball and also the hole where you will be transplanting your tree is large enough for the roots to sit comfortably. Throughout the following Spring/Summer you will need to ensure your tree is kept well watered until the roots have established themselves. Please could you tell me why my dwarf cherry tree now has good foliage growing at the top branches but no foliage further down? Also it is inside since mid December and seems to be much happier? Bill replies...

If it turns out that the tree is cropping well, restrict the pruning to cutting out dead wood and crossing branches in the first year. The next year do a little more and improve the light entrance into the centre of the tree. Without good light the fruit tree is unable to make good fruit bud. I have a very large flowering cherry tree - about 40ft high - which is to be thinned and have the crown lifted. I have two opinions on silver leaf fungus disease; 1 tree surgeon says to wait until June, the other says any time is OK. What is your view? 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. The spores of the silver leaf fungi disease are transferred by wind on water droplets and are dominant in very moist damp conditions Dave and these are the main reasons why it is always advisable to prune Cherry Trees during the Summer months with June being the optimum month. Again with Cherries it is always advisable to treat the pruned branches with Arbrex Tree Sealant.
