Season records for this tree

  • 2016

    Codling moth: Severe attack
    despite pheramone traps this year was bad for codling moth Was told an old trick to tie a heavily greased cloth around the base in spring to stop codling moth so intend to try this next year We had a heavy hailstorm in November last year and this also had an impact on the quality of fruit

    put two pheromone traps in tree this season and had a lot of success against codling moth. Not eradicated entirely but certainly made a big difference
