I've just ordered a root bag from Reads, I understood that figs fruited better if their roots were restricted. I've had this tree for 5 years now, so do need to change its growing conditions. So plan to pot it up in John Innes and put it in the garden.
I'm sure you are right Welshonion, the fig tree at the moment is still trussed up in its winter cover, but I can see lots of 'figs' where the side of the plant is against the conservatory window. I guess I just got excited.
Has anyone a fig in the garden that they don't cover for the winter. i live on the east coast of Lincolnshire, so we tend not to get so many frosts, but thought our winters were still too cold for the tree.
Thanks for all your help
