Just when I thought I had a handle on figs...

It appears that I'm killing my little fig tree :(.

I have a Peter's Honey which was potted from a rooted cutting last season. It grew very well and produced about 1 doz figs for me. I was pleased and thought it was extremely healthy. So this spring just after bud break I transplanted it and another potted fig into the ground.

Well 3 months later the other fig is doing fine just a few feet away but the PH is yellowing fast. They both get the same sun, soil and water. The PH leaves will no doubt drop soon. What may I have done wrong?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The fig was exhausted,growing the fruits last year.
It did not have energy to fight transplant shock.
For now place shade over the Peter Honey,and make sure the soil is moist but not wet.
