I am suffering a repeat of what i think is apple sooty blotch.
The photograph introducing the problem page is identical to the appearance of my apples.
I treated my tree to the grease band and a tar wash in the spring. It is situated in a south facing part of the garden and has not been subjected to more than the normal rainfall for the Derby area.
The tree is a James Grieve and is 18 years old. It is a good producer, but has had a large number of windfalls this year.
Please any ideas what treatment i can give it for next year.
