Fig Tree

Posted: 13/03/2014 at 12:09

Hi Allison, figs grow very well on the coast,i have several on the  Norfolk coast one is 20 years old restricted now to 20 feet wide and 10 feet tall, covered in new shoots ,iv just pruned out all inward growing and damaged and week shoots, in 2 weeks after the frost im tipping all new shoots (very tip only ) not the fruit bud, they are getting fish blood and bone with seaweed chopped up, and mulched,im watering a bit now then more when in fruit with a good dollop of Potash for good fruit, mid spring ONLY if growing well i will cut new shoots back to  4 or 5 leaves but no later, or they wont ripen, good luck  in Lincs
