What is the best way to treat Japanese beetles? They ruin my lovely New Dawn climbing roses every summer. They bloom once, but the beetles start taking over after that. The roses are supposed to bloom continuously but it’s all downhill after the first bloom. Any suggestions?? Thanks! Jean
I have an inherited cherry tree, v large. It is oozing sticky stuff, very badly and we are in the throws of taking it down and burning it but unfortunately it has infected a new apricot tree. I have taken off the affected branches but the main trunk has started oozing. Is there anything I can do. The apricot is small, still in a pot. Just for information, I live in Italy. Can you suggest what I can do to save the apricot tree.
Also, I have an enormous pine that has been oozing a milky substance, what can I do about this.
It is not possible to post a picture in the forum, but if you have a way to post the image on the internet (such as flicker or a personal webpage) you can include a link in your post so that others can see it.
Without any image, my guess is it may be the fruiting bodies of some type of fungus. Check out Margaret’s post on fungus – there are some great links towards the bottom that might help you id the orange balls if they are a fungus.
