View Full Version : Fig losing its leaves after the frost

Hello All,

I recently lost one of my french sugar fig trees to heavy frost, overnight the frost cloth came off the tree. Unfortunately its lost all of its leaves now and only had the tenders at the end of last years canes. Should I be uprooting the tree or leave it til next season in hopes that it will recover ?

Even if it doesn't recover this year, I see no reason it wouldn't come back next year. So sorry to hear about the frost. I hate it when that happens. Same thing happened to a mature pear of mine. Grrr

I would leave it alone for now to see if it recovers. Hopefully the frost only nipped it and did not kill it completely but only time will tell. Kim
