I just planted 2 Fig Trees and they were doing fine. I went out today and found the leaves are turning yellow.
Could you please tell me the reason for this ?
We have had an exceptionally large amount of rain recently could that be the reason.
Thank you for any information or hel you can give me

Patrick,

The trees may be suffering from a little transplant shock. Try to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. They should turn around soon and begin to put on new growth. Soggy soil conditions can promote dieback of roots due to a lack of oxygen as well as root rots. If the area is prone to standing water you may need to find a new location or bring in some soil to create a raised planting mound about 10 feet across.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
