Planting & Care

The Little Miss Figgy Tree (Ficus carica ‘Little Miss Figgy’) is a small, dwarf tree often grown in containers as they reach a mature height of 4-6 feet tall and width of 3-4 feet wide. They are also a great addition to any garden and do not take up much space, but it’s recommended that you’re in growing zones 7-11 if you plan to plant this tree in the ground. They’re known for their blue-green lobed leaves and dark purple fruits that are deliciously sweet and packed full of iron, fiber, potassium and calcium. Eat them right off the tree, in a salad, or bake them in a dessert!

Planting Location: When deciding where to plant your fig tree keep in mind that fig trees perform best in full sun. They can tolerate shade, but prefer full sun. Plant them in an area that doesn’t get hit with harsh winter winds. Fig trees grown in containers should be placed by large sunny windows if kept indoors.

Planting Directions (in ground):
1) Once you’ve selected the perfect planting site, dig a hole that’s three times wider than your tree’s root ball and just as deep.
2) Loosen the soil on the sides of the hole with a shovel or pitchfork. Next, remove any debris like dirt clumps, grass, or rocks from the hole.
3) Position your tree and make sure it’s level with the surrounding ground and standing straight up.
4) Begin to back fill your hole and gently tamp the soil down to eliminate air pocketsfrom forming.
5) After the planting process is complete give your fig tree a slow, deep watering by holding a hose at its base and counting to 20.
6) Mulch around the base to conserve soil moisture and to keep weeds/grasses back.

Planting Directions (potted): 
1) For container trees, select a container that’s slightly larger than the root ball (2 sizes larger than the initial container the fig came in works best).
2) Add a mixture of potting soil and organic planting mix to the container before you place your tree in it.
3) Make sure your tree stands straight up in its container and give it a good drink of water until you see water coming out the bottom of the pot. If your pot doesn’t contain drainage holes, you can quickly add some with a small drill.
4) Allow the top 2 inches of the soil to dry before watering again.

Watering: Fig trees have a fair drought tolerance. Once established they will need a deep watering once every one to two weeks. Feel your soil, if it feels like it’s drying out close to the surface then it’s time to water your tree. Trees kept in containers will often need more water than those planted in the ground. Water your trees more often during times of extreme heat or prolonged droughts.

Fertilization: Usually fig trees don’t require any fertilizing, unless you know that your lawn is lacking in nutrients. If you need to fertilize your trees it’s best to do so in the early spring. Use a slow release, well balanced organic fertilizer, like formula 10-10-10.

Weed Control: Placing a 3 to 4 inch thick layer of mulch around the base of your trees will prevent weeds from growing. It will also regulate the soil temperature, and help the soil retain moisture.
