I have had an apple tree that has been growing nicely from seed on the
border of my garden. Its 10 years old and is only a meter high. It hasnt
been looked after very well but I am in the process of regenerating it
to its full potential. However my rude neighbour has planted a ruddy
pyracantha right next to it!
Has anyone got any idea how to kill this thing off. Im very worried
about my apple tree. I want to be able to kill this pyracantha without
my neighbor noticing . Me and my neighbor do not get on so simply asking
him to move it is out of the question.
Any ideas please!
"I live next to this rude bloke called Liam who is plotting to kill my
beautiful new pyracantha. Please help me protect myself and my property
from the unreasonable demands that he makes, he imagines that everybody in
the block should plant trees and shrubs only if it suits him. I fear he
will spray poison on my shrub over the fence at night and then deny all
knowledge. I want to protect my privacy and property. He will get the
message if I fire-bomb his silly stunted apple tree that is shading out my
wonderful pyracantha. I have been googling for 'napalm' but nobody seems to
sell it round here, what should I use? Also where can you buy Strontium-90
or can I make it myself? We don't get on so trying to talk sense to him
won't work. "

I've got to wonder - WTF is your neighbour doing planting things IN
YOUR YARD? If it's not in your yard, then it most certainly isn't
YOUR pyrocantha to kill, and perhaps you should question the logic of
having planted a fruit tree inches from the property line.
Ideally, the tree is on your NORTH property line, and then you can
simply construct a solid panel fence between the tree and the
BTW - an apple tree from SEED is pretty much a wildcard. Doesn't
matter how tasty the original apple was, the seed won't bear true.
You might consider getting yourself some scions and grafting - then at
least you'd have some known fruit varieties.

Liam you might as well give up on your apple tree, sorry but trees grown
from seed will revert to crab apple as this is the natural tree, all
apple trees are grafts onto crab apple stock. Perhaps this is what you
