Fig trees

Fig trees are usually associated with the warm sunny climate of the Mediterranean region where they are prolific, but they can be grown very successfully in the UK. While in cooler northern regions they need to be grown in warm sheltered spots, ideally against a sunny south-facing wall or under glass, in warmer southern regions they do well even when grown in the open. Fig trees are fully hardy but severe cold can cause die-back of young shoots and kill off over-wintering embryonic fruit. They are easy to grow and trouble free requiring minimal pruning and attention. Unusually the fruit develops without fertilisation in UK conditions and pollination is therefore not issue. In addition to their delicious fruit, fig trees with their large characteristic leaves and tropical look make an attractive addition to the garden.
