Fig trees for low-maintenance gardens

Tolerant of our winters and easy to maintain, the fig tree would be a welcome addition to any urban garden

In the past month I’ve been asked by at least three newbie gardening mates for ideas for a fruit tree to plant in their urban gardens. They all wanted something that was low-maintenance, compact and could handle living in a pot in case of the inevitable house move. Well, there is one particular crop that not only tolerates these conditions but positively thrives on them. And, before a fourth person asks, I thought I’d share it with you.

Fig trees will seed themselves into cliff crevices and cracks in walls in the wild and will, therefore, adapt perfectly to the tough conditions of city life. Coping with infrequent watering and meagre nutrient levels, they have a tiny root run. They also have resistance to a broad range of pests and diseases hard-wired into their DNA. On top of all that, you will barely need to prune them. And all of these advantages are before we even consider the fruit… Oh the flavour! If you fancy adding one to your collection, right now is the perfect time to plant it.
