Hi guys. I planted this pear tree around 3 months ago and it didn’t break dormancy up until a couple of weeks ago. Now that it’s leafing out its leaves do not seem healthy to me (look at the somewhat curly edges of the leaves). Note that there are some grapevines around this tree which, time and again, have been infested with powdery mildew and downy mildew, so I’m wondering if it has been contaminated with the same fungi too. I also did not amend the backfill soil when I planted the tree, so maybe it does not get enough nutrition. What do you think? Are the leaves just OK and when they get bigger they will look more robust or are they suffering from some kind of disease or poor fertilization and I have to do something about it?
