dwaft peach tree problem

dan_nz_gardenerSeptember 26, 2012

hey all

I bought this bonanza dwarf peach tree this winter and it has blossomed recently and the leaf growth has gone full on as we are a month into spring. The leaves dont look right, they have redish scab looking things on them and lots are closing up. The tree is in the biggest pot i could buy from the garden centre in new premium potting mix, i am confused, i bought a nectarine and an apricot too. The nectarine is looking really healthy but the apricot looks like its starting to do it too.

Much appreciated if anyone can help:-)

Hi Dan
its been a bad year for peach leaf curl and that that looks like it.It can affect most stone fruits.Make sure you discard or burn the affected leaves.
