I have 2 young cherry trees (planted as youngsters 4 years ago). They have been growing well and fruiting increasingly. This year no fruit on either but this seems to be the case everywhere locally (mid-France) with cherries/plums, even poor apple yields so I wasn't unduly fussed. The leaves always "turn" earlier than my other trees, however this summer one of them has gone brown and discoloured with spots already, much leaf fall and some leaves curled up. I can't see any insects at present on them. Do cherry trees get 'peach leaf curl'? (!) If not, does anyone know what this is (see photos) & how I can treat/prevent?
