I was visiting a garden yesterday in Nassau county, Long Island, NY.
The owner has an arbor growing 2 female and one male Hardy Kiwi plants (possibly Bower Actinidia - http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/55681/) and two seedless grape varieties - one Thompson and one Glenora.
It seems that all of these plants for the few years have been diseased.
The leaves begin to get spotty. They tend to hang on and just look retched.
The fruit turns brown and drops.
Attached are some pics. We are hoping to identify the disease and manage/resolve it via organic/permaculture oriented methods, if possible.
Any help and advice is greatly appreciated.
