Message: Hi, My grandma has a cooking apple tree in back garden when i picked the apples from the tree the next day i realised i was covered in bites, and recently we have pruned the apple tree i found myself bitten again. I think that the tree may be diseased as there was "like a grey mould" growing around the bottom of new shoots and the leaves seemed to be diseased as well. I was wondering if there is any treatment that you can recommend, any response would be gratefully appreciated.

Message: Hi, I have inherited a cooking apple tree about 30 yrs.old. The lower part of the trunk had been eaten out by some sort of worm etc. It was over 30 feeet and bore loads of fruit. Some had a fruit maggot others not. The fruits were quite big and smached when the fell. I have cut down most of it leaving no branches but the trunk about 6 feet high.
This summer it has sprouted from the trunk young branches all over the trunk. The leaves look very healthy and dark green.
The only problem is that the leaves have developed some brown squiggley lines. Can anyone help or give advice how cure it? Regards.

Message: The leaves on my apple tree have curled and look dead. They are hanging limply. I cannot see any pests on tree it looks like its getting no water, with all this rain I don't think thats the answer. The tree is the mini patio type which I have in a large container. What is wrong with it?

Message: We have recently moved into a house that has an apple tree (perhaps 3-5 yrs old) that looks excessively pruned back to the trunk(probably in March 2011). It is showing no growth or life as yet. Is it ruined, or should I give it more time?

Message: We replanted our 4 year old bramley apple tree in the Spring and it took to its new home with no apparent problems. Lots of blossom and apples started forming. However, they`re now (4th July) no bigger than a large walnut and they`ve gone very soft and the skin is furry. Any ideas of what`s happening? Many thanks.
