The Q&A Archives: Fruit Trees

Question: Just planted new apricot, apple, nectrine, pear and plum semidwarf. Please tell me what I need to be spraying them with now - May-june, and at the end of the season.(for bugs and diseases)
Spraying is very confusing to me so I really would appreciated a just do this answer. I live in Utah County, Utah.

Answer: I wish fruit tree spraying were cut and dried and I could give you specific dates on which to spray, but each of the trees you mention have different requirements. Here's a Utah State University Extension website with publications for each of your trees along with pictures so you can compare your tree with the picture and spray the product recommended. Just scroll down to the type of tree you have and click on the link. Hope you find it helpful!
