Hi, I'm new here... very happy to find this forum. I have 15 years experience in self-sufficiency, so I can surely give some tips, but first off... I wonder if anyone can help me identify and cure a serious problem I have with my kiwis. My farm is ecological so remedies have to fit with this. The kiwis are 7 years old, and last year gave their first good crop, but this year the bark splits open leaving gaping wounds. For a trial, I tried binding one up with grafting tape, but this has made things worse. The bark feels very loose on the wood, and although I can see some are already callousing, the outlook is not very good. Does anyone know the cause of this condition?
