my dwarf apple tree as apples growing on it but the leaves ar turning yellow and fallig of it also as ants running all over it pleas can you help

Asked from the GoYpedia apples page



One of my dwarf pear trees got very distressed during a hot dry spell some years back. It was rescued by sinking a large drinks bottle near to it and keeping the water going. I think it is on weak root stock and will always need a bit of extra TLC, like not allowed to set too much fruit. Thin out at white bud stage and remove largest fruit of a good set. Keep an eye out for attack by pests, they seem to go for a weak tree. Ants go up to aphids on all sorts of trees to get sweet fluid off them.....don't worry they are no harm.
