Help, My Peach Tree Is Dying
My son bought me a patio peach tree for Mother's Day this year and it was growing fine, looking healthy until this week. The leaves started to look like the plant was dry, but it wasn't; and tonight I've come home from work and there are hardly any leaves left on it. On closer inspection there are three blobs of what I can only describe as looking like clear glue on the trunk, sort of hard to touch but upon pressing become softer. Have you any idea what it is, and is there any way of treating it before it dies?
