What is the best time of the year to spray for Curley Leaf in South West Victoria Aust.

And what should I spray the tree with - It is either a Peach or Nectarine, and just about to blossom

Answer: Hi Jenny,The best time to spray for leaf curl is at the first sign of bud swell and repeat one week later. At the end of the season a spray is also recommended at leaf fall. Bud burst is very much dependant on weather conditions and it may have already occurred in your area. Yates Fungus Fighter which contains copper hydroxide is the recommended treatment.
