sprays for potted cherry trees
I have a lapins and black gold which were growing great last year until mid summer, when i had what originally appeared to be Oriental fruit moth damage (although that was not completely confirmed by the fine folks here). I also had some oozing and gum on the trunk and lower branches and worried that it may have been a canker.
The ends of the brnaches started to die back and i had some brown spots on the leaves, which leaves eventually died.
I am hoping to avoid the damage this year as it will be my third year with the trees and hoping to get fruit.
what i think i have figured out si that i should do a dormant oil spray or horticultrual oil (neem?) sometime around march and maybe a copper spray around the same time? I think some dormant oils also have copper? Anything else i would need to spray? I had a minimal amount of jap beetles, which mostly chomped on my pink lemonade blueberries.
