Q.Leaves of My Brown Turkey Fig Tree Turning Brown

bumchin1 added on June 26, 2011 | Answered

Why are the leaves of my Brown Turkey fig tree turning brown? I bought my fig tree 2 weeks ago, repotted it into an old alluminum dolly tub in a mixture of previously used shop bought potting compost and new shop bought compost. It’s about 2 foot tall. The leaves are starting to turn brown (not spots). I’ve put it against a sheltered west wall, which gets the sun from early afternoon until evening. Hope you can help.

This is typically a sign the plant is not getting enough water. Being in a container, and a metal one at that, the plant needs to be watered 1-2 times a day in the summer. Increase water to your tree and hyou should see improvement.
