One of the other things that you want to do- when the tree is dormant, you want to spray it with dormant oil. Here is some dormant oil, and you put it in a hose sprayer. It will tell you how to use per gallon on the bottle and then your hose sprayer will tell- you can fill it up with that and you can place a setting that will- there’s a setting on the top that will put out one tablespoon per gallon, one cup per gallon- so you can rotate this circular measuring device that allows it to mix as you spray. And then all you do is just, you have your hose attached and you spray it and it mixes it as it sprays. So this dormant oil is very important for your fruit. Otherwise you’ll have worms. It takes care of worms, scale insects, spider mites, white flies, mealy bugs.
