I have a dwarf apple tree (winston i think) and the leaves look like they have 2 different problems. One of the problems is that the leaves have a white powder on them, the other problem is brown spots(I put a pic of this). My gooseberries have the same problems. What is the best way to combat it? is it possible to do it organically and with stuff from the kitchen press…….? Last question: Last year my gooseberries got devoured from little green caterpillars, they are back again this year. Any advise? Thanks in advance

Grey powder on leaves is mildew and the affected leaves can be removed to control it.

The brown spots are due to drought. The pot is much too small and dried out at some stage. Either use an much bigger pot, half-barrel size or plant in the open soil.

 And keep just nicely moist throughout the growing season when there are leaves.
