Light Edible figSole pieno
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. The Edible fig should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light.These plants aren't afraid of the cold weather and can be grwon in the garden throughout the whole year.

Fertilize 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.

Cultivation 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.

Water Edible figTenere asciutto
Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 1-2 buckets of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 4-5 weeks before watering it. 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.
