Hullo, I have an Oak tree in my garden that has been growing for about 6 years. It had to re-located due to an extension about 3 years ago. Although the tree was tiny at the time it's tap root was about 2-3 feet. This year the tree had a growth spurt, possibly get clear of the grass/weeds that had built up around it. The upper leaves have a whitish waxy coating & I wondered if anything should be done? I have cleared around the base, sprinkled a little compost & watered it in. Do you have any advice for me?
Many thanks for your time
Chris
