Picking plump, juicy figs straight from a tree is one of life's greatest pleasures, especially when served up with some wafer thin slices of Parma ham and a drizzle of honey. Divine!
Boasting masses of large, pear-shaped fruit with deep red flesh that are ready for picking in late summer and early autumn, 'Little Miss Figgy' is perfect in a large pot.
Even before the fruit is ripe this dwarf variety adds a presence to the garden as branches are clothed with large, deeply lobed leaves.
Despite originating from warmer climates, this amazing compact fig is incredibly tough, easily shrugging off temperatures down to -15°C in the UK. Extremely drought tolerant when established, figs do best in a brightly lit, sunny spot.
Keep plants productive and compact by restricting roots by growing in large pots.
