  • Rust

    Hi All, been reading some posts about fig rust. I was never worried much about it since I knew it wasn’t a fatal thing. My figs are in their second leaf in pots and l am getting a few ripe figs but I let the rust get pretty bad. I picked up some Bonide Copper mix but now I wonder if I can spray my trees with figs ripening.
    I was just letting the fallen leaves stay around the trees, now I remove all fallen leaves but I am scared to spray the trees with all the figs in place.
    what are your thoughts on spraying at this time?
    Thanks for your comments

    Yes, you can spray "Until Harvest" for the Listed / Labeled Fruits and Vegetables, its a "Copper Soap"...

      Ok thanks, I’m eating 2 or 3 figs from a few trees but some are a few days or weeks out so those could be sprayed
