pear tree leaf curl

I have had a pear tree for about 5 years, not sure what variety. Every year i seem to have a lot of blossom, then the leaves start to curl inwardsimage. This has happened again this year. can some one tell me what this is and how to treat and when.  I have not had much luck with this tree, never had much fruit off it and last year all the pears cracked.

    Is it thirsty?

    pear leaves look like that when they first open but as long as it's not dry they open up. 

    Can we see a pic of the whole tree?

  • It certainly doesn't look to heathy to me how close is it to the fence ?

    If too close it could be thirsty like Dove says and a feed wouldn't harm it .

     does it get the sun in the day or is it in the shade ? 

  • It's quite close to the fence, it's close to a pergola which has a clematis Montana and honey suckle growing through it. These are planted quite close to the pear, I wonder if they are all competing for water. Will send a photo as soon as I can.

  • Also its its in the sun most of the day.
