fertilizer burn for fig tree in ground

13 years ago

hi,

my 4 foot tall fig tree that i got from the store was just put into the ground 5 days ago. the landscaper who put it in mixed compost with the native soil, and now the fig tree has symptoms of fertilizer burn.

parts of the leaves have burn spots, and the one baby fig fell off. it wasn't like this prior to the transplant.

what should i do? the landscaper said he didn't put fertilizer in the dirt, just compost. the compost was half dirt and half pure compost that he got from a nursery.

thanks!

jenny
