We had a fantastic massive 20 year old fig tree in a suntrap corner of our old house which kept us in the most fantastic figs every year. Sadly in 2016 when our old house was demolished to make way for our newbuild the fig tree had to go.
The first thing 'er indoors did when we moved in 4 years ago was to buy me a new fig tree : It surprised us by producing a few figs the following year and has gone barmy every year since.....
They're dead easy to grow but do best against a south facing wall out of the wind.
