Greengage Plum Tree


Anonymous added on June 5, 2011 | Answered

I planted a greengage last year, and this year it had lots of blossoms. I flicked off the fruits that weren’t strongly attached and all looked good. Then the new shoots and also some of the older leaves curled up, and although I sprayed it with a mixture of tobacco and detergent, it eventually looked so sad that the other evening I cut off all the affected shoots and leaves. Have I done right or wrong?

As long as the roots and stems are still ok, it will regrow. You may want to try treating the plant with neem oil should any more problems arise.
