Fig disease photo site?
Is there a website with photos of fig diseases? I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with my 10 year old espalier fig tree, and the UC Davis website doesn't show anything close to what I've got.
My tree got black spots all over the trunk one year, and the leaves that year grew small, and turned yellow and fell off early, and the fruit was small, nasty and inedible. One of the espalier branches died altogether, and I lost half of another one. The next year (last year) there were no figs, although the leaves seemed a little healthier.
This all happened after I replaced some of the soil in the pot. I am suspecting either verticillium wilt or nematodes, but I haven't seen much info on how those show up in figs.
Any help would be appreciated!
On a side note--could I graft a replacement branch near where the old espalier branch died?
