Planting & Care
Figs will tolerate any type of soil that is fast-draining with plenty of organic matter. Figs require 8 hours a day of full sun and long hot summers to produce fruit, and must be protected from cold Winters. They like regular water but will tolerate drought once the tree is eatablished. Water deeply at least once a week the first year. The sap of fig trees can be irritating, wear gloves when pruning the trees or harvesting the fruit. Figs are easily be trained as espaliers and do well in containers.
