Q

When I first moved here, my peach tree was unhealthy and barely alive. With regular irrigation from the water that comes down from Cedar Breaks National Monument and all the minerals, it has become very healthy with good fruit. Now it looks like it used to - fruit, but hardly any leaves. Could it be the drastic changes in weather one week in April after Easter - 75 degrees one day, gale force winds the next, then freezing rain and snow, all during bloom time?

Answer(s)

A

It’s hard to tell what is wrong with your tree without taking a look at it.  I would suggest bringing in a sample to the Extension office, 585 N Main, and having us take a look.  Give me a call if you have any question.
