Should I manually remove the curled leaves on my peach trees?

Suzanne, the leaves will naturally fall off during the summer. If your tree is small you can remove them. Otherwise they will drop off and grow new leaves over the summer. Make sure to dispose of your leaves in the garbage and not your compost pile. Keep your tree healthy throughout the summer and it should be fine. Some people like to feed it with compost tea during the summer.

We have had this fungus on one of our plum trees for the past 2 years. We sprayed it with a mix of vinegar, water and Seventh Generation dish soap both years. It seemed to help a little, though we had to do it a few times. Then, this last spring, I decided to plant leeks and marigolds around the tree, just on the off chance that they might deter any bugs or fungus living in the soil and I sprayed only once in the very early spring (march) and,  so far, the tree has been healthier than ever. I, honestly, have no idea whether these intuitive/not very scientific methods were the big turn around, or if it was just a good season… What do you think?

Lori, I can’t say whether it was just one thing or a combination of several things working together. The good news is that your tree is healthier!
