West Sussex, United Kingdom
I have a malus floribunda which I really love when it's in bloom but for the rest of the year it looks quite manky. The leaves are dull all through the summer and the sparse fruits are nothing to write home about, There is no autumn colour to speak of but still I hang on to it for 2 weeks blossom in spring. This year the tree branches are covered in grey lichen--is this a sign of some sort? After writing this I tink I've nearly talked myself into doing away with it! Would you? If so could I plant a fruit tree (with lovely blossom) in the same spot? Any advice re the tree or a replacement please!
