Suited to both the garden and the greenhouse depending on your climate zone, fig trees can also be grown in containers if required. And without doubt fresh figs are very popular with home gardeners across the country. Ficus carica is the species of these wonderful fruiting plants, howver, wholesalers offer a number of varieties with different characteristics.
Varieties that will fruit from early season to late season are available.
In the home garden we suggest container growing, however figs trees will grow well in the ground. These are trees that do not need a lot of fertilizer or particularly good soil, these conditions tend to promote leaf growth father than fruit.
Try to restrict the root growth in the open garden, particularly in very light soils. To ensure adequate sun and warmth, fig trees are best planted against a south-west facing wall. A little protection from any cold winds will be beneficial and protection from frosts when young is essential.
Trees can also be trained into espaliers and fans if required.
