Speaking of Fruit Trees
I'm needing to know what, how and when to spray fruit tree down here in NC. My trees/ figs, apples, peaches, plums, are in their 2nd full year of growth. Last summer didn't do well as far as leaf loss in summer, etc. I'm looking for as organic friendly as possible..but not necessary. Don't want heavy chemicals. Any suggestions?
I've gardened for years in 9 different growing zones, but never was around long enough in one area to have fruit trees. They are being a challange for this old gardener! I've gone to Lowes, etc. and they just seem to want to sell me way more chemicals than I think are necessary...or are they needed in this climate?
