hello everyone we were doing good in the urban garden of eden. birds chirping, flowers budding, leaves shooting up. then i went away. apparently it rained...normally rain is a good sign? then i see ugliness on my trees. my 3 yr apple tree, planted early this spring, had lovely blossoms and green leaves and then the leaves got black from the tips. did a search online about black and leaves, wasn't following symptoms of black rot? i picked off the 'baddies'. i return to find almost no blossoms and shrivelled leaves. when i planted the tree i used 'Mikes' mycchrozhia or whatever in the hole...good fungi, makes good roots? given to me by my dad the genius: his apple trees are growing. the gala apple tree previously lived in a 2 ft pot, didn't appear to have any root rot and gave me about 60 small apples last fall (i didn't thin the tree last year and so the tree worked hard to make me lots of small ones?) when i planted, i also gave it some fruit and berry fertilizer around the tree drip line. the remaining blossoms look dark red/pink and are not tightly clustered, looks like they are opening too much. my 2 yr pear tree, planted a little later this spring, same deal. lives right next to the apple tree. the pear tree had the same treatment of mikes and fertilizer. great little white flowers, now all gone. not sure if the leaves are coming or going...they're bright mint green but they are closed, not open. the pear is a 'fruit salad tree' with red bartlett, bartlett and anjou pears on the same tree. my 1 yr red haven peach (right next to the pear tree) seems to be fine and is starting to open some flowers. my 1 yr lapins cherry tree (on the other side of the apple) is making leaves like crazy, had one blossom. now: i'm out looking at my trees every day, not sure if this is what the blossoms look like when they've done their 'thing' but i think not. just drove thru the okanagan and their trees are blossoming still and no ugly shrivelling. all my trees are at the front of the house, at the roof line with east and south sunshine. i noticed that the roof line tends to drip in between the pear and apple tree, but the blueberries next to it seem to be fine, which were to be my indicator if the soil got too wet there. the soil is pH 6.5 and is a nice dark well rotted mulched loveliness. find pictures attached. anyone got a prognosis for me? i'm hoping it can be fixed, and that we caught it early! the poor things!
