Amended answer: In conversation with a nursery the recommendation is that it would be best not to spray the apricot with a lime sulphur even if it is dormant, just to take away the risk the buds getting burned as a consequence of spraying them with the lime sulphur. Apologies for the original incorrect information.
Prune the tree and follow up with a spray of Enspray Oil and Free flow Copper. Both of these sprays are BioGro certified so safe to use on edibles. Just prior to the bursting of the buds, we would do another spray of Free Flow Copper. After flowering and fruiting use Guardall for protection against potential fungus diseases.
Thanks, the Palmers team
