TAK­ING CON­TROL

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

AP­PLE and pear scab can be con­trolled by spray­ing the fo­liage with a mix­ture of builders’ lime and wa­ter. I use a hose at­tach­ment with a tube dan­gling into a bucket of the mix. Nor­mal wa­ter pres­sure al­lows the mix to be sucked up at the same time. A 2m piece of rigid con­duit slipped over the hose al­lows the spray to cover the tops of large trees.
