Fruit Tree Winter Washes

Anonymous added on May 27, 2011 | Answered

I have a plum tree that is producing fruit, but the leaves shriveled or curled almost immediately after the blooms fell. I noticed black spots inside the leaves, but nothing appeared to be alive. I found a Winter Wash that can be used to treat aphids, which can cause the type of curling I'm seeing, but I can't find the wash in the US (simply called, Winter Tree Wash). Any other tips on how I can treat this tree to save both the tree and its fruit?

We like using neem oil for treating pests, as well as fungal problems. It is both effective and safe to use. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
