Thank you for the reply Vivian.
It is actually rainy season here right now. It has been raining every day, if not, every other day for the past month or so.
Maybe I am fertilizing too much. I've done extensive research and have not found one definitive source that tells me how much fertilizer fig trees need. I guess it's becaue there are soooo many varieties.
I did mulch, but apparently not enough since I've noticed a ton of weeds growing around the trunk. I read that mulch prevents nematodes, so that is why I though maybe that was the problem. Either way, I planned on pulling up the weeds and mulching the bejesus out of that tree.
My soil is rocky and sandy in some parts. Again, I'm going to add a ton of mulch just to be sure that nematodes do not have it easy. I previously added mulch about 6" from the trunk out of fear of causing mold around the trunk, but I will put it right up to the trunk and see what happens.
As for watering, I never water the leaves of any of my trees. I always water around the base of the tree and let the rain take care of the leaves. Even during times of dry spells, I avoid watering the leaves because I've been told that the sun cold burn them(it gets VERY hot here)
The tree itself is growing like mad, but I would love to enjoy the fruits of my labor as well. =)
