Tamara,

The disease on your peach tree is probably bacterial spot. There isn't a good way to spray and prevent this disease although copper sprays applied late in the season just prior to the loss of leaves and fall have been reported to help. I would suggest you try just keeping the tree adequately water and moderately fed with fertilizer to maintain good figure so the loss of some foliage to the holes is not that detrimental to the tree.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
