Peach tree problems

I live in Tulsa, OK and I recently purchased two young peach trees. They are a dwarf variety and appeared healthy when I brought them home. However within a few weeks the leaves began wilting and I noticed small brown spots on them. The fruit was not affected. I sprayed them with Seven Dust insecticide with no results, so a few weeks later I sprayed them with a fungicide and now one of them has no leaves left at all! What do I do?

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Without being able to see your peaches in person, I can't say for sure what the problem is. I'd suggest you contact the folks at your local county extension office or your local garden center --- they should be able to help better if you can talk though the situation (tell them what the varieties are, what specific fungicide you sprayed, what the growing conditions are, etc.).

May be borers. Check the trunk for splits/sap leakage. You may never see an actual "bug". You need something specific. SEVIN/fungicide won't do it. Call a garden center for products, or find the big red ORTHO book-some home improvements carry them. You can look up the problem. I find spraying "dormant oil" over the winter helps. Provides a barrier to keep stuff off. GOOD LUCK!!!
