i have small fruit trees in my garden and i keep getting some kind of black fly on them , what is the best solution to this and also what is the best fertiliser to use on fruit trees ie apple pear @ plum



black fly are the same genus as greenfly usually found near broadbeans,they will be eradicated with a spraying of malathion if they are severe ! leave any fruit eating for 2 weeks,on all my fruit trees I first feed now with growmore and sulphate of potash forked into soil then give a feed of bonemeal about may ,hope this helps perkyinleeds
