Strange behaviour

Clearly it is not the pot.  If you swapped them over and same thing happened.  

I suspect animal ...fox perhaps, a cat?......causing urine damage. It may look untidy but try a mesh surround/screen overnight for few nights.

I had damage by my front door years ago by a cat jumping/sleeping on it overnight.  I put a circle of clematis mesh around it for week or so and this was sufficient to break the cat's routine.  

Peach leaf curl

Not everything is because of each leaf curl Lottolearn.  Without leaves there will not be leaf curl

Wait a little while yet.  a friend has a peach thaf is only just shooting yet mine ....2......are showing fruits.  

Is compost wet? It prob got saturated during the winter.  Does tree seem firm in the pot?  Not loose or "wobbly"?  Any sign of vine weevils?

What to do after daffs?

Morning Caral, a dose of fertiliser.....granular organic like fish old n bone r chicken pellets would be advisable too.  Maybe consider achillea too there....they do well in impoverished soil, grow quickly and vigorously.  Nice feathery foliage and long flowering

Epsom salts is not harmful to humans....wIll not damage,leaves or fruit.

Feed with fish blood n bone Beechtree.  Or seaweed spray.  But Epsom salts is a feed in itself.
