trying to save our pear trees!
We have two fruit bearing pear trees that used to produce bucket fulls, until about 4 years ago. The past two years, I treated with Bonide Fruit tree spray, as recommended, but still lost all leaves by end of July. This year, in hopes to get an upper hand, we pruned early and sprayed about 3 weeks ago. There are much more pears buds swelling than last year, but there is still something attacking the leaves!!. Please help me salvage! I am REALLY hoping this is not a lost cause! Should I spray with something else? Assuming I should go ahead and cut or snip off as many infected leaves that I am able, .... Can I spray again? if so, what do you recommend?
