Plant protection. Polythene covering miniature peach trees (Prunus persica) to protect against peach leaf curl, a plant disease caused by the fungus Taphrina deformans. Peach leaf curl can be spread by raindrops splashing on the foliage, so a polythene barrier provides effective protection. The covers will also help to protect against frost damage.
