I've had it up to here with brown rot!

The problem tree, badly infected with brown rot, 75% fruit affected and the rest just waiting.

If no-one knows how bad brown rot is.  .  . 



So drastic measures were called for.



I'll paint an anti fungal preparation on 'the stump' 3 or 4 times this autumn and winter, spray the ground beneath, hopefully  ::) new shoots will grow which I will train into a more user freindly shape.

Cheers,    Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

Which plum tree is it?
Some are more susceptable then others.

May be better to dig it out and plant a new one?

Wow, that is drastic treatment. Hope the tree recovers in spring with nice new shoots.

It's a Victoria SG6.  'Twas left in the garden with the proviso that the outgowers could come back and dig it up (it was a lot smaller then) as it had been given to one of the girls by her Granny.  They never contacted us.

Every branch on the tree had weeping sores and cracking.

That is what we are hoping trillium.

Cheers,    Tony.

I asked because the RHS site says:

The plums Czar, Jefferson, Ontario and President have some resistance.

What I cannot find is if Victoria is average or more susceptable to brown rot.

I get a few fruits with rot every year but don't worry too much as it's due to overcrowding. I weed out the duff ones.
I didn't have a harvest at all this year but if I had I think the percentage would've been much greater due to the weather conditions.
Let's hope for a more "normal" year next year.......
