Pair of Hardy Standard Figs 1.2M tall in 5L pots £39.99
Picking plump, juicy figs straight from a tree is one of lifes greatest pleasures, especially when served up with wafer thin slices of Parma ham and a drizzle of honey. Divine! This Standard fig boasts masses of large, pear-shaped fruit that are ready for picking in late summer and early autumn. Even before the fruit is ripe it will add presence to the garden as its branches are clothed with large, deeply lobed leaves. Despite originating from warmer climes, this amazing fig is incredibly tough, easily shrugging off temperatures down to -15C in the UK. Extremely drought tolerant when established, figs do best in a brightly lit, sunny spot. Keep plants productive and compact by restricting roots by growing in large pots or planting in 60cm square planting holes fill the base with a layer of gravel and line sides with paving slabs.
