How to choose Fig trees

Figs are fascinating trees, quite unlike most of the orchard fruits grown in temperate climates. In fact they are a sub-tropical fruit, but can be grown by the keen gardener in most of the drier and warmer parts of Europe.

Figs grow and fruit easily throughout southern Europe. They are also quite easy to grow in northern Europe, but getting them to fruit can be more difficult in northern climates. The key is to pick the sunniest and most sheltered spot you can find, and restrict the root growth with a container or a planting hole lined with patio slabs.

Figs respond well to winter pruning.
