Want beautiful fruit this fall? Half the battle is won before budbreak in the spring.
- Mulch trees with kelp, and keep a well around the base of the tree empty to prevent rot. Don’t over fertilize with nitrogen or you’ll get lots of growth and less fruit.
- Spray dormant oil on a sunny day with no wind when fair weather is forecast for the next day. (rare I know)
- Keep your pruning tools sharp and wash with a bleach solution between trees
- Check for disease and winter damage.
