Keep this baby compact. Prune when received. Use good ptting mix. Add humus or manure according to conditions. Add pellet chicken with caution. Add K in Spring. Best potted in a large space and mounted on bricks. Feed Autumn-Spring twice only. Be patient

It was on sale at Bunnings looking very neglected.Currently looking more happy in a pot waiting to regather itself. I may end up espaliering it to keep it manageable.

Fruit buds within a month of receiving my cutting from Daleys. Very delicious fruit. Had a taste of 3 or 4 but lost the rest unfortunately from too much rain. Currently have small green fruit on it again so am quite happy.

The fruit is sweet and tender.  It is an attractive tree with prolific fruiting.  We are yet to prepare a bed for this tree but it may stay potted as the tasty fruit are available in summer and autumn.  A great fig choice, one to be recommended.
