Do any green fingered bloggers know what to do when this happens....
The biggest and heaviest fruit laden branch on the plum tree in the garden has broken off just before the fruits ripened and left this....
It was so heavy with fruit and I didn't realise just how heavy til it broke off in the wind.
Does anyone know what can be done with the scar on the trunk that's left? There are a few other large fruit heavy branches feeding off the trunk here that I am concerned may not do well now because of the damage - can I repair this gouge to protect the tree??
If anyone has any advice I'd be ever so grateful,
(and thanks for the feedback on my last post - which turned out to be quite a thought provoking issue! If I've not popped round to visit you already, I will be soon - thanks)
