I bought my husband a fig tree in the summer for our 4th anniversary but within days of buying it almost all the leaves went yellow and fell off. It's in a pot and has been outside since July. It still has some leaves and a couple of unripened figs on it at the top. What should we do with it over winter? I've searched online for the answer but find conflicting advice. Has anyone had a similar problem and, if so, what did you do? Many thanks.

Depending on the year, a fig can survive outside in winter. They like a bit of shelter from the worst of the weather though. Could you post a picture of it in its pot?
It might be enough to bring it close to the house, or into a sheltered porch.
Or if it is in a huddle with other pots and it's not a horrid cold, wet winter, it might be ok where it is.
