problem with Aprium or Apricot tree (1 reply)
I purchased bare root trees last year and they survived the winter but the labels blew off. I transplanted them into my polycrub (Shetland version of polytunnel) in March and everything has come on great apart from 1 tree which is either an apricot or aprium. It is still exactly the same - no branches or leaves have grown apart from a few tiny leaves at the very top. The same happened with the peach tree but the leaves were at the bottom so I cut the tree down to half the size and it started thriving. I have done the same with the Aprium or Apricot but nothing has happened. Now I'm not sure if it is still alive. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
It sounds to me as if it has died, try scraping a bit of bark off and seeing if it is green underneath, if its not then it will definitely be dead.
