Peach Tree Leaf Curl

I'm a novice gardener and have leaf curl on my peach tree.  Is there any way of getting rid of it please other than taking the leaves off?

    If the tree is in a pot then keep it under some sort of cover as the leaves start appearing in early spring, as the infection starts when the young leaves are rained on (the spores are always in the air but only cause a problem when rain carries them onto young peach leaves.)  If it is planted in the ground, your options are very limited and you may not be able to cover it to keep the rain off, of course.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
