Leaf curl is a disease that must be controlled way before it appears, but unfortunately, we are all generally reactive rather than proactive, so when you spot leaf curl on your tree it means that you left it too late, but that doesn't mean you turn a blind eye and walk away. You still need to get out there and spray the tree with our disease control pack fungicide.
To control leaf curl, the spray application needs to start from the first sign of leaf fall in autumn and then repeated every 4 weeks from thereon through to late winter, early spring.
Doing nothing can cause serious stress to the tree and even dieback from which the tree may never recover. So spend a few minutes to help protect your tree, so you can enjoy the delicious fruit without the heartache of the disease affecting the tree.
This is a traditional fungicide/Bordeaux mixture that you can easily make yourself to help treat...
