growing fig tree
I have a young fig tree only 6 months old, I have brought in for the winter like i was told, but now the leaves are falling off is this usual?

Yes, many trees do lose some or all their leaves when they are brought in for the winter. Figs are deciduous, so they would be losing their leaves outdoors as well. Giving the fig as much light as possible will help it keep its leaves longer, but in any case it will produce new leaves in the spring. Also, cut down on watering since it will be using less water as it winds down for the season.
