    I've just popped outside and noticed this:

    What's in the first picture is the only affected part of the whole tree. It's all coming off one branch, but I see no damage anywhere. The tree is around 70 years old (ish, planted when the post-WWII pre-fab house was built). Otherwise healthy and fruiting well, fantastic harvest last year. Any ideas, anyone?

    It could be stressed due to a dry winter and spring and now our hot weather. I would defo water as Zigs says, at least a gallon every day..
