I am in dire need of some expert advice. I have just moved to Gard in the South of France and I have several Olive trees which I need to now care for. I have two large ones which are beautiful. They have a handful of rusty looking leaves which I have removed (did I do the right thing?) Otherwise I'm leaving them be as they are thriving.

My concern is for the ones I have in pots on my patio.
Thumb of 2018-04-15/Suteki250/444aec the leaves are mottled yellow and brown. The first one is the worst and the other two potted ones have fewer blackened leaves but aren't exactly a lovely green colour either. My questions are first, what is this disease, second how do I get rid of it, third can I prune and plant these trees in the garden at this time of year and, lastly, if I can how do I plant them in the best way to ensure their survival and health?

Here are the other two potted trees:
Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
