  • It’s time to control fruit diseases



    Winter, believe it or not, is a good time to prepare fruiting crops for the season ahead.

    On the next warm day it is very important for us to get some work done to insure a nice fruity harvest this summer. Many fruit diseases can be partially controlled by being vigilant with cleanup and fungicidal sprays at proper times.

    Also, remember pruning should take place in late February on fruiting trees.
