Fig Growing Tips
Happy when planted in the ground or in pots, prefer a sunny location, indoors or outdoors. Hard pruning is recommended to encourage young replacement shoots on old 'woody' plants. Figs ooze a white sap when pruned in the spring or summer. This is not harmful but can cause irritation to the skin. Pinching out of strong growing tips in mid summer encourages the development and ripening of the current crop.
