Apple trees can be protected from cedar-apple rust by following a fungicide spray schedule starting at blossom time and continuing at seven-day intervals until the cedar galls have stopped spreading spores. Control on cedars can be obtained with a fungicide spray schedule from June through September at two-week intervals. You can use Bordeaux (lime/sulfur) or Captan to protect your apple tree. The product label will indicate when to spray your tree beginning late next winter and continuing through the spring months. Feed your apple tree with a time release 10-10-10 in amounts as recommended on the label which will vary depending upon the size of your tree. Best wishes with your apple tree.
