I've mentioned Morrisons plants before, saying how reasonable they are. This little fig tree is my latest acquisition.
I've fancied having a go at growing a fig tree for a while now, I think they're attractive plants and will look lovely in the garden, but I'd also like to have a go at getting some fruit from it too. This is Brown Turkey, a variety recommended for growing in the UK. It looks a nice, healthy specimen, and although it's only small, it's got more growth than some which were for sale, there were a couple with just a twig stuck out of the plant pot.
Fig trees are ideal for growing in containers as they like to have their roots restricted. If they're planted out, they will make vigorous growth at the expense of a good crop of fruit.
At just £2, I'm sure you'd agree that I couldn't leave it on the shelf. It may have some growing to do but I don't mind waiting.
