    Hello everyone...

    Bought this plant a few months ago from a nursery. I’ve forgot what its called, but its not happy.

    Could anyone let me know what it is and whats happening to it. Why its happening and how to fix?

    It gets plenty of water and sunlight

    Thanks

    Kez

    Your plant looks like an apple tree.

    looks like an apple tree, but not knowing where you live or what you have done or not done since planting it... not sure how to help. fertilizer, soil amendments, sprays, I agree it doesn't look happy and healthy. maybe disease or it may be the fertilizer or it may be the spray or it may be none of those things. To properly grow any fruit is a lot of work. challenging. there are numerous sprays needed to get nice apples. if you aren't willing to invest in learning precisely what to do for sprays pull it out and plant a flowering shrub. or plan on ugly apples. really.ugly. apples. horse apples.

    Go back to the garden center where you bought it and find out what it is ! I am assuming that it was not the only one they had ! Then we may know how to advise you !
