Watering: Fig Trees generally need around 1 to 1.5 inches of water each week, either from irrigation or rain. Sun: Six hours full sun Pruning: Prune your fig tree during the dormant winter season. Remove any nongrowing, dead, or diseased branches
When planting your fig tree, place it in an area that receives at least six hours of sunlight. Dig your hole two to three times the root ball size and loosen the roots as you place it in the hole. Backfill any dirt, tap down gently and water.
Prune your tree during winter. Remove any dead, diseased, or weak branches. Place a thicker layer of mulch around base. For winter protection you can build a cage or covering around your tree. This can be removed in early spring.
Potting & Container
When you’re planting Fig Trees in a container, transfer the plant from its shipped container to a new pot. The container should be twice the size of the root ball, leaving room for establishment, and should have drainage holes on the bottom. Ensure you water well to settle the roots and help establishment.
