A "spare" tree on the edge of the orchard, gets only afternoon sun.
Season records for this tree
1.5m / 5.0ft high 1.0m / 3.3ft wide Cedar-apple rust: Severe attack Not doing too well this year, probably not enough sun, and definite issues with cedar apple rust (even with copper soap). Will probably try to find a new home for this tree next year and plant something else in its place.
1.5m / 5.0ft high Cedar-apple rust: Severe 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.
Cedar-apple rust: Mild attack
Received as fresh benchgraft from Greenmantle Nursery; planted in vegetable garden while orchard space is cleared.
