Hello, Got a Bardsey island apple tree recently, about 6ft in a pot, soon to be planted out, but has started to show yellowing on the leaves, please see pictures! its still mainly green but there is maybe 10% yellow/ yellowing leaves on the tree.I have googled a bit but can't quite decide what it might be from the descriptions, it is next to an olive tree that appears to have 'peacock spots' .what is wrong with the apple tree? and whats the best solution?
It looks like its desperate for a feed. Has it been in the pot long? If its pot grown, it may be pot bound at the roots. I would get it into the ground in a well prepared hole as soon as possible. I would pick all the fruit off this year as well, so it can concentrate on making new growth instead of putting all it's energy into fruit.
