I can't get the link to work, Chris.
Still no cigar, I'm afraid. The links are usually shown in bold type. I don't know how to achieve that. Someone will be along soon to help, don't worry!
I'm very sorry Chris. I'm working in an iPad and I am possibly the least computer literate person on the forum.
Don't give up hope, it may take a while but someone else will definitely come to your rescue. They always do.
In the meantime, working blind, I'd venture to suggest that your apple tree is suffering from mildew. Very damp winter weather and a humid spring.Less likely is silver leaf, which is another fungus. Have a look at those online and see what you think.
.see if this works....
Yay! Salino comes to the rescue!
But sadly doesn't tell us what the problem is! I must say, I'm stumped (excuse the pun). I'd say spray the affected vits with a standard fungicide and hope for the best.
Sorry I can't help more.
It looks to me like Apple mildew - info on cause and treatemnt here http://www.kenmuir.co.uk/image/data/pdf/Fact%20Sheets/APPLE%20MILDEW%20_6_.pdf
From the dead grass etc in the pot it looks to me as if it may have been parched at some time - this will make it more susceptible to mildew attack.
I would give the plant a good soaking and then repot, removing as much soil as possible without damaging the roots, into John Innes No 3 loam based compost.
Put the pot into a light place in the garden but out of direct sun until it's had a chance to establish itself in the pot and has started making new growth. In future it's a good idea not to let grass and weeds grow around plants in pots - they compete for moisture and nutrients and your plant usually comes off second best.
