Q.

What should I use to spray on apple trees?

We have a small orchard of a dozen trees. Once our trees are pruned at the end of winter, what should we use for a spray to keep bugs/pests/fungus away so that our apples have a chance to grow? How often should we spray?

I am personally fond of neem oil for this as it is both a pesticide and fungicide and is food safe organic. Plus it has no effect on honeybees, so can be used during blossom time.

This article will help with the spray schedule:
