    Hi All. I have a problem with my 11 year old pear tree. The tree has in the past has given us a vast amount of fruit each year. This year it only has fruit on one side. The other side is riddled with some kind of decease like black spot as photo. Any help / guidance
    would be grateful
    Thank you.

    A common problem with pears is the presence of small black spots on the leaves. These are called “pear leaf blisters” or simply “leaf spots”. They usually appear on one side of the tree only, but they may spread from branch to branch. Found this site it might help

    Thanks Janet, worth a try, Link does not appear to work.

    Loofah, No weed killer used.

      The line in bold works the link below takes you to page not found.
      Also bear in mind it is an American website, so tailored for American conditions, also soometimes things are recommended that are not available in the UK.
