re Trichoderma, some years ago as I love Gala apples but not Royal Gala 
ones, and Gala apples get apple scab in Auckland, I faithfully inserted 
little pegs loaded with Trichoderma seeding stuff ever year and every 
year it cropped well and little sign of apple scab.  It got too tedious 
and expensive so I stopped using the Trichoderma and promptly apple scab 
took over.  So the tree was removed.  For myself I proved Trichoderma 
worked, but needs repeat applications to keep it going.
