We have a dwarf peach tree. It has lots of flowers, but the fruit is poor and full of worms. Any advice?

Answer: Hi Aga,
The dwarf peach tree may be attacked by female fruit fly which lay eggs in the fruit. As the fruit starts to develop Nature’s Way Fruit Fly Control, which contains a protein and sugar based bait, is sprayed onto the tree. The active ingredient is a naturally occuring beneficial soil bacteria which controls the fruit fly.
Ensure that fertiliser and water are added during the growing period.
