Chlorine for Brown Rot
My peach tree has brown rot. Can I do a chlorine wash now? I need to know the recipe too, as I am going to treat it spring.

I have heard of chlorine being used to wash post-harvest fruit with this problem, but never on the tree itself. I would not recommend treating the tree with chlorine.
