It’s that time of year again. It’s time to spray a growth regulator or inhibitor on your olive and plum trees to avoid the mess of nuisance fruit. This application does not completely eliminate the production of fruit. However it does significantly reduce the amount of fruit the tree produces if applied at the right time. Also, it’s important the tree is properly pruned, especially olive trees prior to the application in order to ensure proper absorption for optimal effectiveness.
Timing is essential. January through around mid-March is the best time spray your olive trees. The best time to spray your plum trees is once they start to flower until around mid-March. It’s a small window of time so call us today to beat the rush!
