Figs Contain that Fig
Select a fig of your choice from your local garden centre. Plant it in a pot up to five times larger than existing pot. Stake to ensure it grows straight. Remove all side branches as it grows until it reaches 1.5 metres high, remove the growing tip. Allow 4-5 branches within 500mm of the top to grow. This will give an overall head of 1.5 to 2 metres high. Before spring each year trim back branches by a third to encourage compact growth. An annual feed in spring and again in summer with general NPK slow release fertiliser.
