fig tree

Post by micheleciuro » Sun Oct 14, 2012 10:30 am

I purchased a small fig tree @ 12" tall 2 summers ago and planted it in a container about 18" wide. It seemed to doing good in the summer but now it is loosing its leaves. I have it planted with some annuals. I will bring it inside soon. I used Epsoma soil in the container and just put some of my composite on it. ( after I saw the leaves going). can I do anything ? I did fertilize thruout the summer.
I have another small fig planted in the ground that has not lost any leaves.

Figs are deciduous and will naturally lose their leaves in the fall. I wouldn't worry about this, it's normal for this time of the year. The fig in the pot may have lost it's leaves earlier than the one in the ground because it was more exposed to the cold since it is growing above ground in a pot.
