CURLY PROB­LEMS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

IF YOU’RE a gar­dener who has had a prob­lem with curly leaf on your stone fruit in sea­sons past then now is the time to start do­ing some­thing about it. Go and check your tree, the buds should be start­ing to swell and change colour this means the tree is wak­ing from its slum­ber. Mix up your spray, this can be cop­per sul­phate, cop­per oxy­chlo­ride or a Bordeaux mix. This should be ap­plied two to three times be­fore the leaves ap­pear, when they are out it is too late. If we get rain it will wash the spray off so it may need to be reap­plied.
