pear leaf desease

PeterS1938July 25, 2012

Hi I hope somebody can tell me what the problem is with my 3to4 year old pear tree.The leaf ends are turning black and crinkly and at first I thought it could be fire blight but it does'nt cover the whole leaf and there is no sign of a shepherds crook at the branch ends which they say indicates fire blight.It did have a few blossoms but they just dried up and dropped.Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.The tree is in a large frost free container.

Regards Peter.

Didnt you guys just go through weeks and weeks of rain? Probably black spot, or some other type of fungus from too much rain. You have a pic?
