Ficus carica 'Little Miss Figgy'
An excellent ornamental and fruit bearing shrub. Its compact size makes it ideal for smaller gardens and patio containers. The prolific, mid-size, burgundy red fruits have sweet centres and are produced in both spring and autumn. Best in a sheltered, sunny site to ensure fruit ripens.
May need some protection from severe winter cold. Plant in patio containers or any good garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Prune in winter after the leaves have dropped.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
August - October
