Hi there,

I bought and re-potted a Ruby Tuesday fig tree from Palmers Bethlehem just two weeks ago, but by a few days one leaf was starting to get speckled brown spots, and ultimately within 5 days curled off. The rest of the leaves are now similarly browning and starting to curl.

I’ve placed it in full sun, against a wall so it doesn’t get much wind, and water the base just enough so that the soil isn’t dry past 1 inch below the top, and it is draining out the bottom of the pot. What else can I do? Is this normal for March or could it be rust?

Hi Teresa

Thanks for letting us know. Most likely it is just settling in and feeling a bit shocked from transplanting. Allow it’s leaves to fall and you will find new ones will come through if you continue to care for it as you have been.

Happy gardening
