Now we just need some sun and warm weather (and maybe a natural solution to ward off the slugs)…

Gardening. It’s something I come back to time and time again and now that I have a lovely (and huge) garden I really do want to create a haven rather than just a field. However, it must be stated that I do not have green hands, the only time they’re green is when they’re physically green from either grass stains or playing with paint with Little Piglet. So I really do have a serious handicap and quite often any free time is spent looking at the garden wondering where to start!
So far this year I have managed to successfully plant (and keep alive) 35 laurel tree cuttings and some strawberries.
Not so lucky were my Oliver tree, Oleander bush and Japanese Maple tree all of which died throughout the winter.
Desperately clinging on now is my pear tree, I believe it is in trouble and I’m not sure what to do with it. I really hope that one you will be able to help identify what is wrong with it and maybe suggest a treatment please? I tried Traitement Totale (total treatment) spray last week and it doesn’t look any better for itself but maybe that is normal?
