Any ideas as to how to encourage my Fig tree to fruit? it's 5 years old growing against the south side of my concrete garage with its feet in a pile of rubble (It was sugested when i bought it that I restrict the root growth to encourage it to fruit!) but it just gets bigger and more beautiful every year. its now about ten feet high and six feet across

what are these?
