GMaiden, the pot is plastic and more than half a wheely bin in size, I don't have anywhere to plant it in the earth; I always understood that figs like to have their roots confined.
Dove, I did not realise that they are so thirsty; will remove the other plants. It will make it look a little bare as pot is about 60/70cm across at the top. Did you feed it at all?
Verdun, I love 'my' blackbird more than I love figs; perhaps I should put paper bags over the young figs?
