What's happened to my lupin leaves?

Its not leaf miner or slugs. Even the new leaves are growing deformed like that. I'm cutting them off and hoping for the best!

 Can't see any aphids or anything under the leaf curls. Its only affected one lupin plant and only some of the leaves. Any ideas?

Last weekend we bought a smallish Brown Turkey fig tree (impulse purchase!) and have it in a pot by a sunny south facing fence. All is looking good, its sprouting more leaves already. My question is do we need to feed it? When? And with what?

Our Clematis Comtesse de Bouchaud has just started flowering but the leaves near the bottom are all going browny purple and dying. I admit I forgot to feed it this Spring ... is it too late to feed now?
