Hello All,

I have a newly planted nectarine that has developed peach curl disease. I also have a problem with sow bugs/pill bugs/roly polys eating my seedlings. I have looked through the Homeopathy for F&G and also the materia medica on this site but do not see any specific remedies regarding my situation.

I am not an expert in homeopathy so I would really appreciate the forum's help and advice!

Welcome aboard askazzie

Can you give some more details - eg, soil, hemisphere, climate, age of tree, if other similar trees in the area have the same issue, what grows well in your area and what grows badly - anything that might be part of the riddle.

Have a look here re pillbugs

Hi askazzie,
I don't know if its helpful but the locals here in southern spain have told me that a spray tea made from nettle and horsetail would sort out peach leaf curl...I guess it would have to be repeat sprayed as with a copper solution certainly beginning after leaf fall as the fungus overwinters in the bark crevices etc.....probably good to rake and burn leaves as well if practical. Good luck.
