Mites. This speckling of the leaves is it. Malcolm Campbell helped me confirm it this morning, They've been everywhere this season - stone fruit, roses, tomatoes. The low impact way is natrasoap, medium is confidor. Kelthane is the miticide, and I thought it was the one chemical I didn't have, then I found a bottle of miticide wiith the same active ingredient (Dicofol) in it. So this season I think I'll be going with the sledgehammer. A bit of a shame.
