It seems that on our property purchased a year ago the soils are copper deficient. The property is in Pyes Pa. Sadly our peaches and grapes have just wizened into hard stone like objects on the trees and vine. Is there a product that we can put into the soil to raise the trace element needed and we could lightly spray in the srping. I prefer to treat the soil than having a regular spraying routine as home grown fruit should be as organic as it can be

Hi Patricia, you can apply Copper Sulphate, but please note it is very corrosive to stainless steel and plastics. we would recommend instead going for a regular treatment of BioGro Certified organic plant tonics (seaweed, compost tea, fish tonic) as these contain all sorts of bits to improve your soil quality (including minerals, good bacteria etc.). Unfortunately we don’t think you will be able to grow peaches and grapes successfully without some kind of spraying programme, fortunately Palmers and Palmers Planet stores all have a very good selection of BioGro certified organic remedies/preventable, including fungicides and insecticides as well at the above mentioned plant tonics. It would be best to talk to one of the staff at your local Palmers store to put a spraying programme together, which is based around Lime Sulphur, Sulphur, and Copper spray (all certified organic). Thanks, the Palmers team
