Message: I have a large number of victoria plum trees. The young leaves and shoots are being attacked by very small white insects I think maybe white aphids causing the leaves to curl and go siver but I do not think it is silver leaf. I have read you can spray with washing up liquid but cannot find how much to add to water as I do not wish to kill the leaves or shoots any advise please.
Many Thanks Bob.

Message: I have a two year old Egremont Russet apple tree which has produced only 2-3 apples each year and all fell off when very small. This year several leaves turned yellow and I was advised this was caused by aphids. I sprayed the tree in July with an organic insecticide and new green leaves are now appearing. Should I do anything else to ensure fruit for next year?
Should I spray the tree again in the spring? Many thanks
