I contacted you recently about canker in my fruit trees and the use of neem oil and you said it will work but be careful to follow the instructions. I purchased the oil but it does not give details of use on trees. Could you (please) give me some guidance about its use, dilution, etc. and if to be sprayed on foliage or bark? Also, is there a cost to have an account and how much as a pensioner? I think your site is great and so easy to ask a question. Thank you very much for your help so far. N.Lea

Most Neem Oil is used undiluted straight from the container, usually a spray bottle. In the case of your fruit trees, use the Neem Oil solution as is, do not dilute. This will give you the quickest results. You may need to reapply weekly.
