Fig crop drop
I usually have a modest but pleasing crop of figs ... brown and white... from my two containered trees but this year is especially disappointing. Just when the fruit should begin to swell and ripen, nearly all have dropped off over the space of three days or so. Some I expect from non-pollination during the season but why such a sudden disaster? I understand that temperature drops can cause this (it did go cooler earlier this week) but my father-in-law's tree no more than a few hundred yards down the road has been unaffected. The trees are in a sheltered position and are reasonably well watered and fed.Anyone else suffering?
