Fig tree not fruiting

My fig tree produces loads of little figlets in Spring but they all fall off without ripening. a month or so later. How can I get them to stay and grow? bobbymac, Dublin, Co Dublin Posted: 25/08/2010


Figs are a bit hit-and-miss and need a warm sunny wall to succeed.

I bought a cutting of a fig last year at Glenarm Gardens and it is flourishing in its pot in the greenhouse. I have always wanted to grow a fig and ask whether it should be kept in a greenhouse or is it capable of living outside against a south facing wall. The wind does hit this wall! The fig is "brown turkey". Chebet, , Co Donegal Posted: 15/04/2009


Unless you have a big greenhouse, or keep it restricted to a large pot and pruned, a fig is for outdoors, usually on  a sunny wall.
