need help! unhealthy peach tree

Hi,

I bough an alberta semi-dwarf peach tree last year. It was about 5ft tall. It's now about 6 ft.

It was blooming a week or so, and the bloom petals flew off within a few days. Yesterday, I saw it up close, and noticed that the leaves were curled in, and some leaves had a dark brownish type color.

The only thing I did was to add some fertilizer spikes(Miracle grow spikes for fruit trees) 2 of them, that I put in about a week ago. I did not spray the tree at all. The tree gets plenty of sun 6-8 hrs/day.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like Peach Leaf Curl. Google for info on this fungal disease. This disease is easily prevented, but hard to treat. Good luck.
