Don't worry T. it's probably just the onset of Phtytophthora (sp) or
whatever the FC has belatedly decided is killing vast numbers of HCs (we
don't have the resources etc). 


That aside Gilbert/ Topher, but the weather last week was rather hot and 
muggy wasn't it? Might this not suit these foliar fungal diseases? I've seen 
Cherries suffering Monilinia this last week (I can't recall they were the 
weak 
before) and some Pops are looking a bit Venturia ridden as well.

Having said that I've not particularly noticed Guignardia up here (Sheffield) 
this year yet. Not noticed the HC bleeding canker (possibly not 
Phytophthera?) being any worse than it was last year so far. Trees looking 
sparse at the 
moment were looking sparse last year AFAICT.
