Spray your Crabapples early this year to prevent apple scab and rust diseases.
Preventative fungicides to prevent crabapple diseases are recommended to be sprayed just before bud break (blooming). Typically that isn't until late March…except for this year. Our spring is about 3 weeks early this season and Crabapples are breaking their blooms right now. We recommend a minimum of two treatments with a preference of three. Timing should be approx. 15-21 days apart. Please let us know if you are interested in this service.
