Message: I have a three year old peach tree in a large container and two fan trained wall peach trees. Each is a different variety. I have dealt with peach leaf curl successfully through a spraying programme, and am completely on top of that. The trees are all bearing small fruits. The difference is that I have a problem with the container grown one which I wheeled into the greenhouse over the winter. The problem is with the leaves. I have studied books and the Internet for hours but what I have is not illustrated anywhere despite using the best sources "Pests and Diseases" RHS book by Pippa Greenwood and Andrew Halstead. As it is only the container grown peach, I am convinced that it is to do with the watering somehow. I feed all three with Tomorite and have kept the container one watered every day as we have had almost no rain for months. This is the problem. The leaves (the larger leaves actually), are a mottled rust colour along the outer edges only, roughly a centimetre in depth, but the tip of the leaf is free from it and also the stem end. This rust coloured mottling also is spattered with light colouted small specks. Can you help me please? Is it magnesium deficiency and is foliar watering (which it has not had because of the neat drought conditions here) the answer? Can starting foliar feeding now with tap water (rain water long since went) do any harm to the small peaches that are growing and would that cure the problem? Do I need to apply any nutrient to cure the problem and is there any possibility that I have been over watering the container grown tree as that is the only one affected and I have watered it faithfully every day? Advice would be much appreciated.
