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

Afternoon all from Norfolk,weve had a dull hot day and now the sea fog has emptied the washing line and covered the garden but looks stunning, right im putting pics of a large plant weve inherited when we moved ,the problem is theirs 2 plants on the same old cut down tree both trying to grow,so thats ok except between the joints of the leaves where they meet the main plant is infested with snails and everything not wanted, now question, what is the plant/tree called and can i clean it up by cutting the damaged leaves upwards to the new clean grown in the center and start again or do i have to wait till fall. lovely plant but looking sad due to no TLC. do i go for it or wait   many thanks Alan4711 erein Munsly

Hi NikkiD sometimes i wonder how a bee can find its hive after traveling miles away for the right flowers but cant find its way out of our kitchen with the door and window wide open,they just get angrier and angrier and louder and louder, hitting the glass, i don't know about there actual eyesight it might be poor, how do you know its the same bee bye the way,

Hi Bobby E,  i dont understand Buddyboys answer to you  but you need to talk to the place where you are buying from ,tell them what your trying to do ,if its a nursery or Gard/cent,they will give you all the info you need as to what to buy ,Yes your trees do need to be able to pollinate each other and there are lists of what pollinates what , here is a little advise from RHS just for you to look at but its  just as easy to talk to your surlier, what area are you renovating Bobby
