‘Stone fruit’ is the common term used for several fruits of the Prunus species as they contain a hard pit or stone that is rather large in the centre. The Prunus genus includes several fruiting plants: almond, apricot, cherry, nectarine, peach and plum. Stone fruits are generally, medium sized, deciduous trees or shrubs that are prized ornamentals for their magnificent clusters of white, pink, or crimson flowers when in bloom, along with an extravagant leaf colour in autumn.

Optimum response to fertilisers will only be achieved when weeds, insect pests and diseases are controlled and adequate soil water is available.

Fertiliser use recommendations are presented as a practical guide to good agronomic practice under most situations. Local soil, climatic and other conditions should also be taken into account as these could affect plant response to fertiliser rates and applications.

For further information we recommend you seek advice from your local agronomist.
