What to Know About Your New Fig Trees
Growing fig trees is very rewarding. When growing a fig tree you want to make sure the soil is well-draining and that your tree gets at least 4-6 hours of sunlight daily. Fig trees need lots of sun to produce fruit and without sunlight, the tree will not produce as much fruit. The best time to plant fig trees is in the early spring or late fall, when the tree is dormant.
Fig trees are hardy to zones 7 and up and should be placed inside during the winter if you live out of that zone range. One exception to this rule is our Chicago Hardy Fig tree which is cold hardy down to zone 5. You can read more about how to winterize a fig tree too!
These potted fig trees get fairly large if planted in the ground but can be maintained at a manageable size. You can also grow fig trees in pots!
Growing Fig Trees in Pots
You can grow fig trees in a container if you are limited in space. You will need to pot up every so often if they are container grown so their roots have plenty of room to grow and are not nutrient deficient.
When caring for a potted fig tree you will want to make sure the pot has drainage holes and very well-draining soil. You will also need to change the top soil annually and change out the entirety of the soil biannually. Fig trees like humus rich, nutrient dense soil so they can produce bushels of tasty figs!
Lastly, you will need to put a two inch layer of mulch down at the base to keep the roots warm during the winter and help retain moisture during spring and summer
