Almond tree leaf curl
In the Spring our 3 year old almond tree leaves began to show a raised up red blemish on less than a quarter of them, which I duly removed and binned. Only one almond has formed this year compared with a dozen or more last year. All was well with the tree as it grew and the rest of the leaves were good and healthy. Now however I notice that about one quarter of the leaves are starting to curl. I have looked up the RHS site but there appears to be nothing that I can do to solve the problem apart from putting a barrier up (which will look daft and does it really help?). Any ideas or experiences to share would be appreciated, thanks.
