Little holes on Plum Tree leaves.

Little holes on Plum Tree leaves.

I would be delighted if you could enlighten me as to what is causing the tiny holes on the leaves of my Victoria Plum trees and of course what would rectify the problem. See photo. Curious, Headford, Co Galway Posted: 19/07/2017

This is called shot-hole, caused by spores of fungi, also can cause brown rot of plum and blossom wilt.

Not much you can do. Bury any rotten fruit and reduce shelter if it is a very sheltered area.
