Growing Fabulous Figs

essential elementsFigs produce two crops annually, in Autumn and Spring, so now is ideal to plant one and enjoy its fruits.

Fig trees love a hot, fairly dry climate similar to their native Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters, yet they are ideal for most parts of Australia where frosts aren’t excessive. They need full sun but dislike strong winds, so choose a sheltered position if this is an issue in your area. Their attractive feature and ability to grow well in a smallish space make them popular pot specimens.
