Fig trees can develop fungal diseases and bordeaux (lime/sulfur) or neem oil sprays can help protect the leaves if applied just as the new leaves are unfurling in the spring. Be sure to rake the fallen leaves and remove them from the garden this fall and winter. Look for fruit tree fungicides in your garden center and apply according to label directions. Good luck with your fig tree.
