Thanks for that. I'm sure you are both right from the photos.

Can anyone please identify this tree please and tell me how tall it will grow. It is about 4 to 5 metres from the house.

I'm sure it is Diablo. (or Lady in Red) I recognise the burning bush because a friend has a brilliant example. I can only keep Diablo in a container so may have to root prune it eventually.

Thank you. I will follow it up. So far it doesn't have any flowers so will wait to see what happens.

Thanks Dovefromabove. I have just looked again at the site and the info on figs is great. I will have a go at root pruning next year.

Please let me know when you get an answer. Thanks

After looking again at the fig I think it could be too dry and also the roots are coming out of the bottom of the pot! How and when do I root prune. Do I just cut off a third of the roots or do it in stages? What do folk use for container compost for a fig?

I don't know that it got too dry but will give it another year to see what happens. Thanks

Has anyone had trouble with figs just shrivelling up and going soft before ripening? Is it because of this year's weather?
