Fig trees

Hi Chris, Have you thought about planting it against the wall? I have a Brown Turkey fig trained against a south facing wall on my patio in West Lancashire. It's planted in the ground and this is it's 5th year. Its probably about 8ft high and 12 ft across and comes out about a foot.  I prune it to kep it in shape each spring. It fruits really well every year, last year I got over 100 ripe fruit. This year similar number all swelled and waiting for the sun to ripen them. Looking at your photo mine was smaller than yours when I planted it in the ground.
