"Garden Watch Frogs Top 10 Easy To Grow"

 You won't receive field dug or bare root plants. All our live Fig Tree plants are 3 - 4 feet tall overall, and are very well established. Fig Trees come in the growers pot with the growers soil mix (NOT BARE ROOT), are very well packed and leaves are trimmed before shipping.
 There is NO waiting years for your new Fig Tree to establish itself, NO guessing if a bare root plant will survive the shock of division and transportation, NO having to plant immediately.
 Our growers always select the healthiest plants for your shipment. Your new Fig Tree is watered and securely bagged prior to shipping to keep the soil moist and to ensure that the soil stays in the pot, during transport, not loose in the box.
Below is a general guideline and may or may not work in your environment.
 Ideal use: Standalone Center Piece, Fruiting Hedge or Orchard.
 When you receive your new Fig Tree - There is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plants in 14" deep cells can be stored for a year or more by simply placing them in a bucket with about a half inch of water in the bottom placed in a shady location. You can then add some mulch to the bucket help them stand up straight. The mulch will also supply nutrients while in storage. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your Fig Tree plant.
 
Note: Before shipping your new plant is watered & bagged, most leaves are trimmed to eliminate any stress during shipping. Fresh new growth often begins within a few days.
 Planting Information - Remove the plant carefully from its pot by laying it on its side and lightly tapping the sides of the container. Gently slide the plant out of the pot. In some cases where the roots have grown through the holes of the container you may need to cut the container off of the plant.
 Use a sharp knife or garden shears to make slits down the sides of the root ball. This will encourage accelerated root growth into the new soil.
 Be sure not to cut too deeply into the main root system. The object is to only lightly score or cut through the secondary or feeder roots on the outside of the root ball.

 Your Fig Tree should be planted a little below the soil line and watered heavily after planting to wash in side soil. Often we have found mixing a small amount of slow time release fertilizer into the lower level of the soil before planting speeds up the rate of growth.
 When planting in ground allow enough space for growth usually on 10-15 foot centers. If planted too tightly there will not be enough room for root expansion and plants will not reach their full height and fruit potential.
 Recommended Container Size - Most gardeners don't realize that Fig Trees grow well and reliability produce fruit in patio containers. Allow enough room for growth generally a 20" to a 30" diameter, 18" deep container will suffice.
 Remember the looser the roots, the taller and healthier your plant will be. When the plant becomes root bound its growth will slow. At that point it is time for a larger pot.
 Height & Width - Fig Tree can reach 10-15 feet in height and 8-12 feet in width even when grown in cooler climates. However your new Fig Tree may over or under perform, depending on the light, soil and humidity it is exposed to.
 Water - Fig Tree prefer rich slightly moist soil. Many decorative containers do not have drain holes at the bottom, so when a plant is regularly watered the roots in the bottom of the pot are subjected to an aquatic environment, with no hope for oxygen and decay begins.
 Light - 80-100% Sun - Depending on your location full sun is best. Note: Clown Fig Trees with white variegation will suffer foliage damage if planted in full sun.
 Fertilize - For a rich full look, fertilize sparingly, monthly by broadcasting at least 4-6 inches away from the trunk with a slow time release 15-5-10. Unfertilized they will tend to grow very slowly. WARNING The heavy salts in cheap fertilizers may melt the outer layer of the trunk thus killing the plant.
