Multi-Grafted Stone Fruit Tree - Advice about Insects/Disease

7 years ago
last modified: 7 years ago

I received a 4 in 1 tree as a gift - peach, nectarine, plum & apricot. It was potted and blooming when I received it. I have absolutely no idea about how the plant was grown, sprayed, etc. before I received it. There are a few nectarines on the tree now - almost 1" in size. I am starting to see some black ants and small black flying insects on the tree. I would like to use only organic products to control disease and insects. So, since I have no idea whether they used dormant oil or anything else before I received the tree, what should I use/do at this point to try to prevent or treat disease and insects? I only grow the easy fruit trees - mulberry, fig, persimmon and some blackberries and blueberries, and have never needed to spray, so I am at a complete loss. I would appreciate any advice or suggestions. Thank you!
