Figs like the sun and need to be situated on a south facing wall where they will receive plenty of warmth to crop successfully outdoors. From an established fan-trained fig tree it is possible to expect a yield of 5-14kg.

Figs need to be grown in a sunny position. Figs can be trained as a fan against a wall or as a bush where it will need protection from north and east winds. Figs will grow on a wide range of soils but all must be well-drained. Restrict the roots to prevent the fig from putting on too much growth and put the energy into producing fruit instead.

Figs are available in containers all year round.
