Re: peach tree, new map, weekend gardening recap

Donna, sorry about your peach leaf curl.  It is very common in the San
Francisco Bay Area where we often have mild wet winters.  I don't think
there is anything that can be done after it sets in, for this year.  The
Sunset Western Garden Book says the leaves will all fall by midsummer.  In
other words the tree looks pretty awful for a year.  Besides cleaning up all
the diseased plant parts, Sunset says to spray once after autumn leaf drop
and once as buds swell but before they open. Good luck.
