I am retired and enjoy pottering in the garden. I love the wildlife that visits. I don't like pulling anything up so my garden is unorganised like me

Looks like a form of leaf curl Pearl, probably all the wet weather we had , I’ve got it on my peach trees 😞. Take them off and don’t put in composter , just bin them 👍
