My fig arrived just below the described size. When I queried this with Blackmoor, they assured me it would grow in size very quickly. But it really hasn't despite optimum planting & positioning in the sun. It's pretty stunted still.

I ordered 2 of the fig trees and collected them on the day I asked for with no problems what so ever. The trees were in excellent condition and the extra advice I got from the very helpful man was great. What a fantastic place. Thank you.

This year was great for our figs. Had a very big harvest. Very sweet and juicy when left to ripen in the tree. This is the third year for my fig tree. Many thanks to Blackmoor for giving such an amazing quality plant. Last year I lost all my figs to squirrels and birds. But this year I had netted them and wrapped the sides with mesh cloth. I haven’t lost a single fruit this year. Thanks again to Blackmoor and I strongly recommend any trees and plants from them.

I ordered a year old Brown Turkey as a birthday present. It arrived beautifully packed and glowing with health - my friend is thrilled with it! A special thanks to your team as I left ordering to the last minute. I put a note on the form explaining my shortcoming. Much to my surprise it arrived within 48 hours - fabulous service Blackmoor, I couldn't have asked for better.

This arrived as a one stem little specimen in the winter of 2017. It has grown and branches rather significantly last year, had bore a couple of figlets. They didn’t make it as I think the summer of 2018 was too dry and long working hours means we haven’t paid too much attention to it. The plant grew strongly regardless. We are planning it in a bigger wooden tub this week and are connecting it to a self-irrigating system, we could see some little buds already and hoping for a few nice figs this year!

25 Oct 18 | Tony Peck

Thank you both fig trees arrived safely very well packed, actually took some time to unwrap. Both plants in excellent condition one already had five small fruits on it. Very well pleased thank you again.

The plant is not cheap. I planted it in open ground. The soil is predominantly clay but a large hole was prepared and rotted manure and compost was mixed in before planting. We had a very wet long spring. The plant never even started. to shoot.

Quite small but healthy

19 Dec 16 | Cat

Lovely tree with a few little figs on already. Look forward to the harvest the year after next.

I bought a 10L Brown Turkey Standard in July 2014. Beautiful thing, though obviously no fruit that year. It’s in a large pot on a sun-trap patio in Suffolk and this year has produced more than 50 fat and luscious figs! Most rewarding thing I've ever grown! Thanks Blackmoor

Nice fig tree, very well packed and arrived in record time, Thanks.

9 Aug 16 | Annette

I have been growing this successfully in a pot on the patio for two years, now. It has fruited both years, and the fruit is delicious.

I bought Brown Turkey some years ago. Now it is 10 feet high on an East facing wall of our house in Stockport. Not only has it survived some bad Winters but it seems to enjoy its location and produces a quantity of figs every year. Last year (2015) the crop was big enough to make 10 jars of delicious fig and mango jam. this is a winner

Brown Turkey Fig Growing Tips.

How to grow a Fig Brown Turkey in my garden - 

Figs need warmth and sun and so are best grown as fan-trained trees against south or south-west facing walls or fences. In very favourable areas they can be grown as freestanding bush trees. Therefore choose a well-sheltered spot, which is exposed to the sun and plant 4-5 m (12-15 ft) apart. If grown against a wall it should be planted approximately 25cm (10in) away from the wall to avoid it being in a rain shadow.

The traditional method of planting is to construct a fig pit measuring 60 cm x 60 cm x 60 cm (2 ft x 2 ft x 2 ft). This can be constructed of 60cm x 60cm (2ft x 2ft) square paving slabs or something similar which are set into the ground with the rim about 2.5cm (1in) above ground level. The base of the pit should be packed with brick rubble or broken tiles to a depth of approximately 22cm (9in) to provide drainage and to prevent the roots escaping. 

The pit should be filled with a loam based potting compost such as John Innes No 3. Alternatively a pot of 35-45cm (14-18in) diameter can be used and plunged into the ground – provided it has adequate drainage holes. Crock it well and again use a loam based potting compost such as John Innes No 3. Repotting of pot grown figs will be necessary every 2-3 years – do this in late winter.
