Apricot Trees

How Do I Prevent Leaf Drop in Spring and No Blossoms on Tree?

Sandra added on May 23, 2011 | Answered

Last season, the apricots were nice on the outside but rotten inside. This spring there were only a handful of blossoms and now in May the green leaves are dropping from the tree, which is 6 years old. My garden has 1one apricot tree and one cherry tree. The cherry isn't doing well either (2 cherry trees which produce are close to it next door). I have hard clay soil and live in the Redding, CA area close to Shasta Lake. How can I help the trees?

It sound like your trees have a fungus. Treat them with a fungicide. I personally like neem oil. Here is more information on it:
