My 1st Apple Tree


By Scotkat


Last year I bought a braeburn apple tree and a conferance pear tree from Aldi.

At first as they are patio fruit trees I kept them in pots.

But in early spring I decided to plant in ground and the apple tree is in blossom but the pear tree not even leaves.

If this year nothing grows on the pear tree it is coming out and I shall donate it to our community garden .

Seems strange as my Pear tree is always the first of the fruit trees to blossom. Wonder if it was killed in it's pot during December Kath...what a pity.

So think need to replace :)

Yup, I think so...perhaps it was dead when you got it...its hard to tell if trees are dormant isn't it.

If no leaves appear, you will give this dead tree to the Community Garden. Mmmm!
