Peach Trees
Q.

What insecticide would I use to protect my peach tree?

Last spring was the first time I had seen fruit on my dwarf peach tree and was so happy to see all the little nubs which I hoped would grow to mature and delicious fruit. Unfortunately, each and every one of these tiny treats died. What did I do wrong?

It is hard to say for sure what happened, but if you're looking for a good, safe insecticide, I would recommend neem oil. As a bonus, it is also a great fungicide which will help if your tree is having fungal issues as well.
