As I mentioned last month this fig tree is only about 12 feet tall and is perhaps 25 years old. When Trevor was given it some 20 years ago it was obviously considerably smaller and in a container. Before transferring it onto his plot he made a pit for for it lined with paving slabs to constrict the growth and produce more fruit.
Close up I could that the branch ends are now showing green points of emerging new growth.
Many readers of this blog will know that I like biscuits but fig rolls are not among my favourites. If you like them then have a look at Nice Cup of Tea and a Sit Down’s 21st Century Fig Festival!
Happy tree following!
