Q.Questioning A Recommendation

Zone 97215 | Anonymous added on January 21, 2023 | Answered

Your article Common Peach Diseases: Peach Tree Care For Sick Trees https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/peach/common-peach-diseases.htm states: “A single spray of lime, sulfur, or copper fungicide all over the tree each winter should prevent future problems with peach leaf curl.” I believe the author means “lime sulfur” (no comma), a common fungicide used on many fruit trees (though unavailable to home orchardists, these days). Yes, lime is used as a calcium boost, and sulfur is a fungicide. However, I don’t believe either is recommended for control of peach leaf curl.
