Tips on Growing Fig Trees

Location: Figs require full sun all day for fruits to ripen. In areas with short (less than 120 days between frosts), cool summers, plant trees against a south-facing, light-colored wall to take advantage of the reflected heat. In coastal climates, grow in the warmest location, against a sunny wall or in a heat trap. For container grown plants, replace most of the soil in the tub every three years and keep the sides of the tub shaded to prevent overheating in sunlight.

Irrigation: Young fig tees should be watered regularly until fully established. In dry western climates, water mature trees deeply at least every one or two weeks. Desert gardeners may have to water more frequently. Mulch the soil around the trees to conserve moisture. Drought-stressed trees will not produce fruit and are more susceptible to nematode damage. Recently planted trees are particularly susceptible to water deficits, often runt out, and die. Planting Marigolds have been known to repel nematodes.

Fertilization: Regular fertilizing of figs is usually necessary only for potted trees or when they are grown in sand. Excess nitrogen encourages rank growth at the expense of fruit production, and the fruit that is produced often ripens improperly.

Frost Protection: In borderline climates, figs can be grown out of doors if they are given frost protection. Plant against a wall or structure which provides some heat by radiation. For further protection, erect a frame over the plant, covering and surrounding it with heavy carpet in winter. Keep the roots as dry as possible during winter, raising a berm to exclude melting snows during thaws. In northern climates, the fig is best grown as a tub or pot plant that can be brought into a warm location in winter and taken out again in spring.
