Hello

 

Does anybody know what ratio ie. ml to Ltrs of water of Jeyes fluid is required to wash down an apple tree as we can no longer obtain tar oil

I wouldn't put Jeyes fluid on a living plant.

Both Vitax, and Sowing success, make a  Winter Tree Wash.

And have the advantage of being organic as they are both made from plant material.

I was looking at a wash yesterday in a GC. Never having used one before I wondered whether to use it or not, so read the label. It said use between october and December. Do you think I'm too late?

I've never used a winter wash. I don't spray my fruit trees. I use plum moth and codling moth traps, and the blue tits take care of the rest.

I use the Winter wash as well as the pheromone traps. And I do each tree twice. Once in December as advised on the package and then again in March.
