Hello. I am new here and so glad to have found this forum. It has much wonderful information. My question is this - I have 2 apple trees, one is the old fashioned green apple like my grandparents used to have, sorry, but I can't remember the name, and the other one is a tree that was recommended by the nursery I purchased the trees from to polinate the other tree. These trees have been planted for 4 years. I have a few apples on them, both last year and this year, but the limbs are dying back. Very slowly, well maybe not so slowly, the apples are about the size of a marble, and on some of the limbs the dead parts are already over 8 inches down. I have asked everyone I can find, and no one can tell me what the problem is. I even wrote the nursery I purchased them from, they are reputable - not sure if we can say names here, but they cost me a pretty penny when I bought them. The leaves just turn brown and die. I spray for bugs and diseases and I fertilized last year, but not this year yet. Can anyone help. I will be glad to provice a pic if needed. Thanks so much.
