Hi PF sorry meant all the infected leaves not all the trees. We were worried the wind would carry the mildew to the pears, which is why we clipped off as much of the infected areas and popped them in the bin...

Dove will try a weekly watering can of liquid seaweed, per tree as well as all the rain we are getting to see if they are suffering water shortage being against the fence.

Its just if they get worse during the summer whether we can replace them in the same soil or if the infection would pass to new plants..?

Hi would love to show a pic but its all been taken today by the bin men. We have been monitoring the problem now for a while and its progressed a lot since last year.

This is what we believe it to be but wondered if it would be safe to replace them with new trees in the same spot

Hi hope someone can help

 I have the white fungus over my espalier Apple trees - they are in their 3rd year and  the branches are quite bare in places over the weekend we trimmed off the worst leaves and offshoots and they are looking quite sparse now. I don't want to put any chemical spray on as I am trying to keep the garden as chemical free as possible...

Is it true that if we decided to replace them later in the year with new ones that if we plant apples again the fungus remains in the soil?
