FIGS

My fig tree looks settled and happy on the allotment. I think this year we shall have a reasonable harvest; the original tree is in the back garden and gives us a huge harvest each year. I never thought I would be able to grow figs here in the Midlands. The cuttings take well, I have found that I have to be patient. I prune the old tree every February and this year I saved about ten cuttings. Planted them in the bottom of the greenhouse in the back garden and will leave them til next spring. Then I shall dig them out very carefully and plant them on the allotment – the idea is to create a small fig orchard – about 8 to 10 trees.
