My almond tree has contracted peach leaf curl and I've noticed that my laurel plants nearest to the tree have become very unhealthy. Would this be due to the leaves from my almond tree falling onto the laurel? Also what can I do to save my tree? Yours sincerely Steve.



Information regarding Peach Leaf curl in the link below, including actions to take,although frankly, there isn't an effective fungicide you can use in the growing season once its taken hold - most action is to do with avoidance rather than treatment, but have a look at it anyway

This infection is unlikely to be affecting your laurel, though it depends what you mean by laurel exactly - four plants get referred to as laurel - Prunus laurocerasus (cherry laurel), Portugal Laurel (Prunus lusitanica) Aucuba japonica (spotted laurel) and Laurus nobilis (Bay laurel). If your laurels are Prunus varieties, its possible, but only remotely possible, so if the symptoms look exactly the same, then it might be. However, its more usually ornamental cherries that can (rarely) be affected.
