During the winter season we advise protecting the roots of the youngest species with straw or dry leaves; when planting young plants we can ensure them to a stake, which maintains them erect. Let's grow the the Edible fig in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.Let's grow the the Edible fig outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.

Feed Edible fig
The fruit plants are fertilized using manure or other organic fertilizers; Towards the end of the winter letís plant the fertilizer at the foot of the plant.

Care Edible fig
The development of the the Edible fig is erect; in genereral in the lower part they have a pretty bare stem, while p many ramifications develop towards the top. As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree. This plant in the spring, summer, autumn, winter assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 5,5 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.

Irrigation Edible figTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the the Edible fig every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. From April to October letís remember to clean our orchard periodically from infesting plants, which otherwise use a part of the water and of the fertilizer that we feed our plants.
