We purchased and planted a dwarf Conference pear tree alongside breaburn apple, victoria plum and merrillo cherry in in October 2009, the apple, Plum and cherry trees have all developed well but the pear tree is not much bigger than when planted and the leaves are still tiny, with the main trunk and branches are green in colour not a healthy brown. Could you please give me some ideas as to why and any help as to what to do about it.



I would say there is no vigour in the root stock. Transplant the tree to another place in the autumn, feed the position from where the other came and purchase and plant the new pear in the same place.
