Tree Following, July 2015 – A fig tree

Fig tree Jul'15

From a distance it looks like there’s been little, if any, change to the fig tree from last month except that it’s perhaps rather more leafy.

Close up it’s interesting to see the colour and shape of the branches, as seen in the left-hand picture below.

As I mentioned last month most of the fruit had dropped but it’s noticeable that since then new fruit is already starting to form as can be seen in the right-hand picture above.

Jo on her blog The Good Life recently did a post Spreadeagled asking for advice about her fig tree.  Please read it and if you can advise on what she should do then she’d be grateful if you would leave a comment there.

See Lucy’s Tree Following post for details of what this is all  about, and this post for links to other Tree Following posts for this month.

Have a good weekend!

    I have a fig tree but it hasn’t fruited for the past couple of years. perhaps chilly North Wales doesn’t suit it! It’s still a nice tree though. Hope you have a lovely weekend x

    It’s looking good Flighty. Does he normally get a crop from it? CJ xx

  5. Liz says:

    Those branches are really interesting and twisty. Is it unusual to have new fruit form when earlier fruit dropped — all in the same year?

  6. Jo says:

    I’ve heard people mention that fruit forming on figs in one year goes on to provide the harvest the following year so perhaps that’s what will happen with this later fruit which is setting. Thank you for the mention, I still haven’t quite decided what to do with my fig tree so it would be great if I could get some more advice.

    Wish I knew something about fig trees to help Jo, but I can only admire its gorgeous leaves and eat its juicy fruit! Nice to know the fig you’re observing is putting out fruit again.
