diseases in conference pear tree
As I don't really fancy writing a dissertation on this subject, since there are so many things which can affect fruit trees, it'd be easier if you could give us the symptoms you're seeing for diagnosis.

But no-one's asking you to write a dissertation Bamboo, so please don't worry.
Piper could you provide a photo of your pear tree to help the volunteers on this site to give you advice? We need a bit more detail, and a "please" wouldn't go amiss either.
However, in case you have fired an exam revision/homework question at us, you've come to the wrong site. GOY cannot do your work for you.
Weeding, to answer the Q as written 'does' require a dissertation!
I disagree. No-one is forced to answer these questions, or write any very long and detailed answers. I think a polite prod for more info works better.
Thinking about it sounds like and exam Q to me

I wasn't aware that what I said could be interpreted as impolite, Weeding, it was intended to be rather more humorous, and certainly factual - such a broad question would require a dissertation as an answer, and if you look, I've said "I don't FANCY" which indicates my making a choice, not that I am feeling dictated to, which also suggests that I am prepared to answer given more information. Therefore, you have interpreted something that was not present in my answer.
I didn't think you were being rude Bamboo, simply honest.
yes, you both are very direct and honest.
Have you noticed Weeding that there is no further info? Looks more and more like and exam Q to me...
If you have a specific problem with something you ask about that problem you tend not to ask a broad general Q, which you do ask if you are seeking info for an exam or similar...
Piper my apologies if I am wrong but we do get a lot of Q's at certain times of the year which are from exam papers or tests running up to exams. Whilst we are happy to help folk it really does not serve to spoon feed answers to any one.
Yes, in my experience these weird and brief questioners do not bother to look again or respond to any advice given, or digging to find if they have a genuine garden question.
But if a question annoyed me, even mildly, I would not waste my time responding to it.

Sometimes I respond, other times I ignore. Recently I flagged a couple of blatant commercial responses to Qs oh and the latest 'lady of the night' who wanted to get to know me… can't imagine why when I'm in my 60s and female - lol!
Well, I suppose it takes all sorts and you look very smart in your photo!!
This morning I'm a bit depressed cos I cannot keep up with our garden. There are so many gorgeous and groomed specimens on here that I feel rather defeated... I'd like to spend a few hours hedge cutting again as I have a luxurious day off, but the 2 teens in my care have voted to go to a shopping mall (bleaugh!) and no, I can't just put them on the bus unfortunately.
Couldn't even persuade them to yomp up a Malvern which I would have liked : 0 (( Ah, the sacrifices we make.
Better luck tmw! On the cheerier side, the British Hedgehog Preservation Soc - what a mouthful - looks all set to declare our road a "hedgehog street" - ie can welcome convalescing hedgehogs sometime in the future. And tmw afternoon I'm helping at a friend's charity garden party, shld be good.

Weeding I suspect that most of us on GoY would rather be in the garden than doing other things... We just have to sort ou a balance... good luck
How do I say thanks?
« There are some fuschia bushes growing at the back of my garden. Can I take cuttings...
Hi can anyone tell me what kind of leaves are these cheers »
