Peach tree

Asked June 7, 2018, 7:51 PM EDT

Please can you tell me what this is and what to do about it? Is there a natural solution (organic)? If not, what chemical does Oregon allow? Also, what are those tiny green bumps at the base of the leaves (out of focus but I hope you can see them) in the second photo? Thank you, Mary

You can relax. Those tiny bumps are called extra-floral nectaries and are normal structures on the leaf stems of cherries
.
This site has images of nectaries on various cherry trees: https://bygl.osu.edu/node/746.



I need to know what to spray for the virus which is causing the black spots, please.

Please send several images so that we can verify the rose has black spot, a very common disease. Most useful will be (1) the rose and its surroundings; (2) the rose, alone; and (3) a close view of an infected branch.

I look forward to seeing your images.
