fungal/pest disease on apple tree
Can you tell if this is a fungal or pest problem on my apple tree.Some leaves are going brown, others have a mosaic pattern on them and there are holes in the apples. Can you give me advice on how to treat this problem?

The wool is due to woolly aphid,a form of greenflly. Use a garden insectide when the apples are gone.
Mosaic patterns are due to leaf-miner burrowing, largely harmless.
Holes in fruit is probably codling moth, apply Nemasys in June, from Mr Middleton. This is eelworm-based and there are no chemical residues.
