Gooseberry not produing fruits I have a gooseberry bush that bears no fruits, and have been told that I need a male and a female, is that correct? Do you supply both? Thank you. Wilhelm

Wilhelm Derner

Hello Wilhelm, These plants are self-fertile so they do not need a pollinating partner to produce fruit. The most likely reasons for your bushes not producing fruit will be one of the following. Not enough sun Lack of water Lack of nutrients Incorrect pruning No winter protection from birds Late frosts damaging the flowers I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

What is wrong with my Plum? I have a Victoria plum tree (fan trained) and this year there is quite a good crop of plums, but many have turned into something more like prunes - rather sticky and purple coloured, with off-white coloured spots all over. Is there anything that I can do about this, perhaps for next year?

David Ellis

It sounds like your plum may have Brown Rot. The Brown Rot fungi affects almost all top fruits, particularly apples, pears, plums, peaches and nectarines. The fungi Sclerotinia fructigen (on apples) and Sclerotinia laxa (on other host plants) gains entry through injured skin. This initial injury can be caused by pecking birds, cracking due to frost or irregular growth and scab infections. The fungus can spread to adjacent healthy fruit by direct contact, or by insects, birds or rain splash that has come in to contact with the source of infection. Fruit can also contract the disease in storage. DAMAGE Brown Rot occurs as brown decaying patches (which later bear white concentric rings of spores) on ripening fruits. Infected fruits usually drop off, but sometimes remain attached to the tree and become mummified. CONTROL There are no chemicals available to control this disease. However, preventative measures can be taken. All overwintering sources of infection should be removed and destroyed by the early spring. Fallen fruits, mummified fruits and the short section of the spur to which the fruit was attached should be removed and burned immediately. From May onwards the crop should be examined at regular intervals and any infected fruits should be destroyed. Avoid or minimise possible causes of injury to fruits by taking appropriate measures of pest control. Codling Moth is one of the major factors causing injury. The fungus gains easy entry into fruits through bird pecks and wasp bites. Netting will keep birds of the fruit and jam jars hung from trees can be used to trap wasps. Smear a small amount of jam inside the jar and fill it with soapy water. The fungus may also enter the fruit at the site of scab infection so control measures should be implemented against this disease. Fruit thinning will also reduce the spread of Brown Rot from one fruit to the other by contact. Fruit that is put in to storage should be unblemished and checked at regular intervals.

What is wrong with my pear tree? We have a pear tree, which each year has lots of small pears on it, but by June the majority of them have turned black and decayed. It looks like we may have about 6 left this year, last year we had 3. Could you tell me what causes this and how to treat it?

PETER ELSOM

It sounds like your pear tree may have Brown Rot, which is a fungal disease that affects lots of fruits, but particularly apples, pears, plums, peaches and nectarines. This appears as brown decaying patches (which later bear white concentric rings of spores) on ripening fruits. The infected fruits usually drop off but will sometimes remain attached to the tree and become mummified. The fungi Sclerotinia fructigen (on apples) and Sclerotinia laxa (on other host plants) gains entry through injured skin on the fruit. This initial injury can be created by pecking birds, insect damage, heavy frosts, scab infections or cracking due to irregular growth. The fungus can spread to adjacent healthy fruit by direct contact or by insects, birds and rain splash that has come in to contact with the source of infection. Fruit can also contract the disease in storage. Unfortunately there are no chemicals available to control this disease. However, preventative measures can be taken. All overwintering sources of infection should be removed and destroyed by the early spring. Fallen fruits, mummified fruits and the short section of the spur to which the fruit was attached should be removed and burned immediately. From May onwards the crop should be examined at regular intervals and any infected fruits should be destroyed. Try to avoid or minimise possible causes of initial injury to the fruits by taking appropriate measures of pest control. Codling Moth and Scab are some of the major factors causing injury so keep a look out for these. Netting will keep birds of the fruit and jam jars smeared inside with a small amount of jam and then filled with soapy water can be hung from the trees to trap wasps. Fruit thinning will also reduce the spread of Brown Rot from one fruit to the other by contact, and fruit that is put in to storage should be unblemished and checked at regular intervals.

How to control pests

Containment, rather than complete eradication, is the key to pest management in an organic garden. A certain number of pests have to be tolerated because they are food for the predators – kill all the pests and there is nothing for the predators to eat. T
