Help: Week old cherry whip with gummosis on the top
Craig's crimson cherry on newroot1 bare root planted only a week ago. It's in a 20-inch container. But just found this out last night after work, there are clear gum at the head of whip. :-(
1. In your experience, is this normal for newly planted cherry whip?
2. Will this tree likely to have canker later years? (prognosis)
3. What should I do now? Would you recommend heading cut, once the weather is dry. Should I do it asap?
I did check Soil is Ph: 7
Thanks in advance for your help!
