Hi, I'm from San Diego.
To prevent against leaf curl, I treated both my nectarine and peach trees (twice, one week apart) with Bonide liquid copper fungicide. Both trees had severe leaf curl this past year and the fruit set was poor. Near the nectarine tree is potted parsley and scallions. When I sprayed the trees, some of the fungicide drifted over to the parsley and scallions. Will this damage the parsley and scallions? Will it make them dangerous to eat? On another note, if the nectarine and the peach tree have the leaf curl again this growing season, should I replace the trees? Would it be worth it to also spray these trees with Neem Oil? Many thanks, Bruce Belsky
