A couple of months ago the fig tree had plenty of immature fruit showing and plot neighbour Trevor, who’s tree it is, said that he was hopeful it would be a good year.
Unfortunately since then nearly all the fruit has dropped off the tree due, he thinks, to the cool and windy weather during May. This was the only fig that I could see when I took these pictures last week.
What was also noticeable was the now impressive size of the leaves, this one being bigger than my hand, as well as the colour and shape.
Have a good weekend!
