Can anyone suggest what is making both my fig trees leaves curl so much. They are also being attacked by grasshoppers, I think.

I was hoping someone would have helped you out by now. I did hear the remey for this problem on ABC Capriconia this morning on the Gardening show but forget [sorry]. However if you go to the link and ask Tom the question I'm sure he will have the answer

I have the same leaf curl problem on my black genoa fig. Have just established that it is caused by the fig beetle or the fig leafhopper insect which can be controlled using Confidor Sprays.

just got your question amanda.
my problem has been possitively identified as the leafhopper insect which can be seen on the underside of the fig leaves they are small/minute white insects that move sideways to escape your inspection. generally only had one on each leaf. Leaves were all ages.
hope this helps. the insects are very small, will see if i have been successful at eradication next season. insects are to small for me to photograph with my equipment.

Hi fig leaf curl,
Try mixing this fertilizer brew.
2 parts blood n bone, 1 part sulphate of potash, 1 part epsom salts. Mix this together and apply at 1 handfull per sq. metre, from the trunk out to and past the dripline of the tree.
Cover this with mulch and water in.
