Answer: Hi Lyn,

Controlling leaf curl is all about timing. Looks like you used the right product – Yates Liquid Copper Fungicide is certainly up to the task. Follow label instructions carefully:

i.e. “Spray when buds are swelling but before and within one
week of bud opening. Where leaf curl is likely to be a severe problem based on previous experience, spray first in autumn at leaf fall and then at the first sign of bud swell and repeat one week later”
