Peach lead curl is caused by a fungus........however, if you can keep rain off in spring and early summer you will avoid it. Easy for a small bush or a fan trained one where a cover can be attached to fhe wall/fence at this time. Ideally grow in a greenhouse.
Susie, a 3 metre tree will be difficult to protect.
I grow 2 varieties in pots ....currently in GH and free from peach leaf curl now. I think they will now be safe to put outside
I will read Dave's link posted above myself
