Pear tree problems

Hi all

We planted some young grafted fruit trees last autumn, with a view to creating an espalier fence. We've got 2 apples, 2 golden gages, and 2 pears.

Over the last month or so, on of the pears has started to look sad, the leaves have curled up, some have dropped off, and there are black spots on them. I've made sure to keep everything well watered during the really hot dry spell we've just had in Suffolk, and this tree has had exactly the same treatment as all the others. The other trees (bar an apple that has had blackfly problems) look really healthy, although no fruit to speak of this year.

Does anyone have any ideas of what could be wrong, and what I could do to make it better? I know you're the best people to help me!

Thank you so much!

    Looks like pear scab burn the leaves and spray fungicide.

  • Thanks Barry. That sounds like it could be it. I'll get rid of the leaves and spray. The other pear does have some signs of it, so best act quickly! image
