    Problems with winter moth, as on both my trees every year. Destroyed most blossoms last year, but this year I fought back by spraying the trees with cooking oil and dishwashing liquid in water every few days until the flowers reached the pink stage. Tree has blossomed occasionally, but this year it is covered in flowers. Height a bit over 3.5m (nearly 12ft) at the beginning of the season.
