Hi gardening experts, could any of you advise what might be the problem with my young fig tree. The leaves gave turned yellow & brown in the last week/10 days. I had a mature tree in my last house & i don't remember the leaves looking like this
The leaves do turn yellow and drop if they're too dry - and they will of course turn yellow and fall in the autumn - and as Monty says, autumn's early this year.
I know you're going to, but I'd get those weeds cleared from around it sooner rather than later
Did you water during the hot weather.?
Thank you both - I did water but probably not often as I should have. It's quite a shady spot & ground retains moisture. the weeds are actually acquilegia & are all over the garden (nightmare to control)
Those ones look more like buttercups than aquilegia to me
Aquilegia's foliage is usually much more fern-like.
Oh, why didn't I see your post until after I'd posted mine WO? But at least we agree
Dove and Welshonion. I think you're both right. There's buttercups and geum in there. Geum urbanum maybe. Wood avens
In the sticks near Peterborough
Yes, I thought I saw some geum .....
