My apple tree leaves are diseased. The top of the leaf looks like apple scab, the underside is white /orange and raised slightly fluffy. Is this apple scab? If I cut off all the infected leaves will that stop it from re-occuring or do I have to treat the whole tree?

my pears have black fungal type marks on them which disfigures. In the past i have used a seaweed mulch and it worked but this year it has notworked, altho recently mulched some months ago.
One tree not mulched, after years of not fruiting is the only one in fruit. It seems they are all very old and i inherited them 20 yrs ago. Am at a loss what to do next. John-H

You recommend to spray with myclobutanil to control apple scab. Bayer's "Fungus Fighter" contains myclobutanil as the active ingredient but it states on the spray that it is not to be used on food crops??

Last year I planted a young braeburn apple. This year
after a promising start the leaves have developed a black sooty spot and are brown and curling on the edge.
The fruit that had started to form have mostly fallen off and look very dry. I imagine it's a form of fungus,( It has been very wet,) I have been taking off the infected leaves and destroyed them. The other thing I was wondering about is that this tree was planted pretty much in the same spot where an old apple tree used to live, Is it possible that could have something to do with it? I try not to use chemicals, sometimes there isn't a choice....

I have apple scab on about 50% of fruits so far. Should I a) remove all affected fruits and/or b) use suitable fungicide?

We haver an apple tree which over the past 3/4 years has suffered from codling moth - which we treated and put up moth traps. This year we have apple scab! If we treat with the chemicals as suggested will this eradicate the problem or is it likely to come back again next year? At the moment we are seriously considering having the tree up
