Peach leaf curl

Many thanks, Verdun.  I'll try the seaweed spray.  

I'm still definitely learning...

I've just about given up on a similar, potted tree which has always had a good covering of flowers but then succumbs to the dreaded curl. 

I'm very, very reluctant to spray with anything - if it affects the leaves, surely it could affect the fruit?   Feeding sounds more positive so I may just give it a last chance. 

If it doesn't sound a silly question - what would you feed it with, Verdun?

The long, strappy leaves are quite strong & useful for temporary tying in of climbers.
I have also used them for wrapping ad hoc Christmas wreaths and the like.
I suspect I'm not the only one who just pulls the leaves firmly out without bothering about a spade!

Naive query - sorry. But what happens to the leaves you don't pull in that first year? Do you just leave them to die down or do you have to remove them later or...?
