2.0m / 6.7ft high 1.5m / 5.0ft wide May have been somewhat affected by cedar apple rust, but not too badly. Copper soap seems to help
Overzealous weeding resulted in weakening the surface roots, and tree was knocked over during an summer storm. Installed scaffolding to hold in place while these roots are replaced.
1.5m / 5.0ft high Cedar-apple rust: Mild attack Moved to final location in orchard. Pruned to 4 foot.
Initially treated cedar apple rust with captan which burned all foliage, then switched to copper oleate (1 ppt Cu at final concentration) and tree recovered.
Received as fresh benchgraft from Greenmantle Nursery; planted in vegetable garden while orchard space is cleared.
