Fig Tree 'Brown Turkey' Standard - 4L Pot

Certainly one of the best figs for the British climate. It crops reliably in the UK given a sunny sheltered spot, ideally against a south or west facing wall. Once established, the plant is drought tolerant and provides excellent shade, and also produces wonderful Mediterranean fruit that are naturally rich in Vitamin C. Will grow well in a pot, or in a pot sunk into the ground to within 2.5cm of the rootball.

'Standard' is a term to describe the size of the tree as it is delivered to you. The eventual growth height of the tree is no different. Standards are more mature with thicker stems.

Planting and Care

If growing outdoors plant in a sunny location, ideally against a wall for protection. Figs also grow very well in containers, as they can be overwintered. Containers can also be sunk into the ground. Soil should be moisture retentive, as they grow well in soil with good drainage. A pH of 6.0 - 7.5 is ideal. They can be planted at any time but spring is the best period, as it gives the plant a full growing season to become established. Keep a planting distance of 3m.

If growing in a container move the plant outside in spring, once the prospect of frosts has gone. Mulch outdoor grown plants in spring. Water well in summer. Figs can produce fruitlets in spring and summer. Only the small fruitlets produced in late summer can survive the winter, so remove any large fruitlets which you don't believe will survive. Fruitlets produced in spring may ripen in a greenhouse but are very unlikely to ripen outdoors. Remove any fruits which are not large enough to ripen at the end of the season.

Pollination

Fruit trees will only produce fruit if their flowers have been pollinated. This is usually done by flying insects such as honey bees, bumblebees, flies, wasps etc. Some cherry trees are self-fertile while others require a pollinating partner from the same pollination group. For more information about cherry tree pollination groups please click here to see our guide.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. They can also be cooked into delicious pies and other desserts. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.

RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.

Newly Planted Tree

Here at Primrose we planted some young trees so that we could document how they grew over the next few years. This is an image of a newly planted tree that was planted in March and is roughly how your tree will look when it arrives.

3 Months Later

As you can see there has already been a lot of tree growth after only three months. We are going to continue to document the growth of the trees that were planted. This means that you can compare and see what your tree should look like at various stages of growth.

How to Plant a Potted Tree

A containerised tree can be planted at any point during the year unlike a bare root one. As long as the ground that it is planted in is not frozen or waterlogged the tree should be able to establish itself in any season. When planting your tree make sure that it has been watered and that it is in a suitable position where it can recieve plenty of sunshine and shelter from cold winds. For more information about planting your containerised tree please click here to see our guides.
