Leaf Curl: Creosote Anti Fungal
Last year I pulled a three year old pear tree due to leaf curl. This year it's neighboring tree has it too. I read that copper sulphate is a remedy. Since leaf curl is a fungal disease that hides in the soil I am about to try my own remedy. Creosote is a local plant, an anti fungal. Just so happens its blooming right now so I harvested a bunch of it and soaked it in 5 gallon buckets of water. Tomorrow I will apply it to the soil. I also put some branches of the plant around the base of the trees. Fingers crossed. More as it comes.
