Q.what’s causing brown spots on fig leaves

Grace1159 added on August 28, 2014 | Answered

This is a tree/bush that was cut back to ground. I have tended to it and got it up approximately 3 ft. high. Brown spots come on leaves, not all of them, and no fruit is setting yet. Then it dies back in winter.
