The Q&A Archives: Brown Turkey Fig

Question: I recently bought one of these trees (one of yours) from a landscaper. The leaves are turning yellow and falling off. What do you think may be the problem?

Answer: If you've recently transplanted your tree, it may just be going through a little transplant shock and should recover. Aside from that, a potassium deficiency can show up as leaves which are marbled with yellow spots, and the veins are light colored. If this describes your tree, fertilize with a balanced fertilizer. Best wishes with your new tree!
