I purchased a super-sweet nectarine tree from Lowes a few months ago and I think it has X-Disease (aka shotgun disease.) Small redish purple spots develop, then fall out, there is a small amount of leaf curl, then the leaves drop.
Is it even worth trying to save?
If I replace it with another stone fruit tree is it okay to plant it in the same spot?
Are there any preventitive steps, preferable organic, to take next time?
Thanks in advance!
