    Default foxglove tree

    well now iv sorted out the tomatoes...thanks for that! does anyone know why my foxglove tree which has recently leafed(is that a word?) has got brown crusty patches on and some of them are ragged looking, It is 20 foot hi and so i cant really get up there to have a good look. Its its 3rd year and i was told if I didn't chop it it would flower this year? It doesn't look very well to me. i have sprayed with a multi pest potion but I dont think its helped.

    It could be this damn wind that has caused the problem how far from the sea are you may be salt damage.
