KG PROBLEM SOLVER

GOT A FRUIT OR VEG PROBLEM? ASK KG FOR HELP

PLUM TREE SPLITTING

Four years ago I inherited my dad’s house with a large garden. One side of the garden is lined with fruit trees and bushes which I do my best to look after. In the middle of the lawn is an old plum tree. I did prune it right back two years ago. The trunk seems to be splitting so I have supported it with stakes. My dad, with all his wisdom, thought he could sweeten the fruit by sprinkling a bag of sugar round the base.
