Lincolnshire, United Kingdom
We have an apricot tree that bore fruit last year - enough to make delicious jam, although my wife complained it lacked juice (took a lot of apricots to make a little).
This year, it looks a good developing crop again, but the tree has a big problem - curling leaves (it had them last year and we removed them one by one, as we thought it was a disease, and new shoots did grow).
We read during the winter, that it was not disease, but the effect of rain.
Anybody any ideas? and would you commence removing leaves before they drop off anyway - looks a right mess at the moment, but the fruit looks unaffected so far. (praying no more frost)
Thanks to all my readers
