#ProPlantTips for Care:

The more sun it receives, the sweeter, more plentiful your harvest will be. Fig trees don't require a lot of fuss to keep them looking and performing their best. They'll do best in well-drained soil. Give Fig trees an even amount of water on a regular basis to avoid splitting fruit. Use the Finger Test to determine when to water. Stick your finger into the soil near the plant up to the 2nd knuckle. Getting dry? Time to water. Still moist? Skip watering and check in a day or two. They'll like a thick layer of mulch over their root systems, and you'll appreciate the savings on your water bill. Pull mulch back 6 inches back from the trunk.
