My apple tree has a good few leaves that look like they are burnt.

I only planted it earlier a few months ago, and it was flying, loads of flowers, but its not looking its best now.

I spread some manure around the base (around 2 yr old stuff) and its since then that this has happened.

Has that been the cause?

yeah you're right, it is very exposed.

Thats a pity, there's not really anywhere in my garden thats sheltered either.

Crying or Very sad
