We have let you down, the medlar and me. Firstly we missed the flowers. Well I didn’t miss the flowers it is just that I didn’t take any photos of them. Believe me they were stunning. The best I could find for your delectation is this half flower. Admittedly this is a little disappointing, especially after the big build-up from last time. What is more the tree is looking decidedly, what us highly trained horticulturalists call, “manky”.
I have had a quick browse as to what this lurgy might be but the consensus is that Medlars are generally free from pest and disease. It could be stressed, well so am I but I’m not covered in brown spots, hang on a minute……!
