Planting fig trees against a wall:
Fig trees grow in any well drained soil. They can be grown as a fan shape against sunny, south facing walls.
To get the best crop of figs, you need to restrict the roots of your fig tree. By making a strong barrier around the roots of your tree, you will make it grow to a manageable size and produce more fruit.
Ideal places to grow a fig tree:
|Size of Wall to Cover||Size of Hole to Dig|
|8 feet high by 15 feet wide||6 feet long, 2 feet deep, 2 feet wide|
|6 feet high by 10-12 feet wide||2 feet square|
For best results, add plenty of well-rotted manure and compost to the soil that you fill back in to plant your trees.
