Fig Tree
Q.

Why do my fig tree leaves turn grey and withered?

The tree is about 10 years old. It starts off beautifully in the spring. Soon after the leaves are full grown, they turn grey and withered. We do have some fruit this year but the tree seems stunted! We have tried fertilizing and it receives adequate water. This is happening only on half of the tree this year!!!!
