Morning all,i have a problem with one of my young fig trees,so far this tree bought for me in 2012 has been very good ,its about 3 feet high 4 main branches and in good nick,Until a brownish rusty type under the leaf and onto the fruit disease has ruined this years fruit,(pics ) I have removed all the infected leaves, the pictures  of these leaves are  the latest im removing from the tree, the young fruit is the last one to get infected, I have had good figs so far from this tree ,I wonder if anyone has any knowledge of Neem Oil which has been suggested ,the only other thing and its a grasp at a short straw is iv over watered it there are 2 plants suffering  so far ,any ides would be good ,bit miserable erein Norfolk this morning
