Apricot malady - can you identify this disease

My apricot tree is unwell. the leaves start off looking ok, but then start to fade and develop small reddish spots. Now the leaves are starting t die back. Please see photos.

Can anyone identify the problem and, more to the point, advise me what to do about it?imageimageimage

    I think you have peach leaf curl. The only way to stop it is to rig up a cover to stop it getting rained on. The leaves will drop off and be replaced by healthy leaves later on.

  • What is peach leaf curl - a rust?
