Category: Tips for growing figs

Growing figs successfully is easy in areas with long, hot summers, but this should not discourage you, figs can also be grown in large containers. This attractive, delicious treat requires proper winter protection, minimum of 8 hours of sunlight daily during the growing season and well-drained soil with plenty of well-rotted organic matter, to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Young fig trees need regular watering to become established and throughout the summer for highest yields. To conserve moisture mulch around the tree and little pruning is required in late winter just before growth begins. Be sure to remove all dead, diseased, broken or crossing fig branches to encourage growth. Delicious figs are ready for harvesting when completely ripe, slightly soft to the touch, fully colored and split when gently squeezed. You may want to wear gloves and long sleeves when harvesting because the milky sap from the tree can irritate your skin.
