Hi Soolar,a few years ago i planted a p/f in a good big heavy terracotta pot about a couple of years later or so it had escaped the bottom of  the pot and went into the worst soil/rubble in the garden and spread over 30 feet on an iron fence it was stunning ,i hardly ever watered it,strange plants Passions and a good pot is the way.

Ps I had to saw it down when when it became just unmanageable, i have one now and i keep it a reasonable size in a Pot .i really dont know whats wrong with Santys  Good Luck,

There was a time when almost every fisherman's garden was full of the stuff,after a days fishing it was frowned upon if you threw any unused hemp into the the water so we all took it home and youv guessed the rest ,i think in the end most fishing lakes /rivers banned it. good old days.

Where to plant a Fig?

Posted: 12/07/2014 at 17:04

Afteroon Figs cant resist em ,if your going to plant a fig in the garden consider a fig root bag,this will save all the hard work Monty did ,they come in different sizes and are not expensive, Its only important to restrict the fig roots for the first 6 to 8 years once the tree is established and is fruiting then the restriction is not required so the experts tell me , IE:  http://www.readsnursery.co.uk/fig-trees-for-gardens-and-greenhouses/   Figs in pots ,dont oversize the pot they dont like it,follow Reads advise and dont forget the early spring Fish blood and bone ,April High Potash for fruit and a small FBB in Noember for the winter kip. and they do like a good drink,   Good luck
