This is our fig tree...
It's been in the ground 3 years now...and it's not growing very fast. For some reason, this one has only grown maybe a foot? If that? We always thought they were faster growing but not this one.
Perhaps it's the soil and it will just take longer for the roots to break through the heavy clay. Or perhaps I need to do a special kick-starter fertilizer?
|Figs on a fig tree|
It is producing figs, albeit not very many, and we have to fight the birds for the ones that are on there. Hoping we'll get at least a few this season. I LOVE figs, 2nd Man is not a big fan but I say he just hasn't eaten the right fig dish yet!
I think figs are such a great compliment to other things like cheese, honey, nuts, other fruits, etc.
Anyone out there have any fig tree growing experience and/or advice?
