Weeping fig losing leaves

Posted: 08/08/2015 at 19:43

My indoor fig is suddenly losing masses of leaves. It's been in the same position by a glass front door for 20 years and is 5ft tall.  I've been watering it a bit more than usual as we've had such scorching weather and it gets midday sun there. I've looked on websites and some say let it dry completely before watering, others say never let the compost dry right out. So I don't know if my watering has caused this or not. I know they usually lose a few leaves now and again, but I've never had this before.

Well worth the patience, as once you've got them going, they'll be there year after year after year.........Mine are nearly 30yrs old! Might not be the originals, but they self seed easily. Good luck!

Short Variety Shrubs Suggestions?

There are several short hebe varieties that are evergreen but will give summer flowers as well. They've some in a flower bed at my local supermarket and they look attractive all year. A good garden centre should have a selection.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Deadheaded the buddleia bushes to help them continue flowering as long as possible. Should water pots tonight as still no rain . Good weather for sunbathing, but borders are too dry to plant anything new. My clay soil is like concrete!
