Where to Plant
Plant in full sun, against south or south facing wall. It is best to restrict the root growth of the Fig Tree as this will prevent it from growing too large, but keeping the tree fruitful. Growing the fig in a large pot or if planting in the ground, line the area floor of the pit with rock rubble, and the sides with concrete slabs to prevent further root growth.
