Prevent peach leaf curl

Try to prevent peach leaf curl from infecting your fruit. Spores of the peach leaf curl fungus are carried on the rain and can infect buds as they start to open; if your peach or nectarine is trained against a fence, it's relatively easy to make a simple shelter of fleece or canvas (if plastic, make sure air can circulate) to protect it from rain and at least reduce the chance of infection.
