Peach Tree Leaf Curl Problem


I have a peach tree in my garden that had been doing well for years, however I cannot get the copper spray I was using anymore. So this year it got peach curl for the first time. I did try a spray from the garden
centre but it didn’t work. What can I use to keep my tree happy and healthy?

Dear Sarah

I would recommend VitaxBordeaux Mix.  This is a copper based treatment that is suitable for Peach Leaf Curl.


In order to prevent the disease occurring in the first place, it is a good idea to keep the tree covered
between the leaves falling in Autumn until May with a Peach Fruit Tree Proctector.  This stops the infection taking hold and offers protection against frost as well.

I hope this is helpful. 

Please let me know if I can be of any further help.


Kindest Regards
