Little Miss Figgy Fig Growing Tips.

How to grow a Fig Little Miss Figgy 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.
