Time to put on the second spray after the petals have fallen. I have some trouble with my pear tree which shows yellow spots. I completely lost my dwarf cherry tree of 15 years, probably because I couldn't put on super-killer fungicide. I use a mix of Home Defence and a copper fungicide, fairly strong. This has proven to be good for the apples and plums, and hopefully the pear tree will produce this year.
Up at the cottage, we have a weak season of blackflies. These are easily kept at bay on the deck with Off deck candles. I expect the dragonfly squad to arrive this weekend, which will wipe the blackflies out. Mosquitoes will now come at night, and a deck candle is good for them. Costco has the stuff on sale right now.
