I have a fig tree that produces lots of foliage each year but begins to lose it in autumn. In eight years it has not produced a single fig, just leaves and new growth. Any suggestions?

    It is normal for a fig tree to begin to lose leaves and go dormant as the daylight hours shorten and the night temperatures drop in autumn.
