If you want to raise fig trees, these tips can help.

Prepare The Soil

It is always a good idea to prepare the soil before you plant the trees. This will ensure that your fig trees have the best chance of surviving and growing. You should plant the fig trees in well-drained soil. Add compost if needed, in order to get more nutrients in the soil and make the trees healthier. You can also find soil that has nutrients added to it. You can add the nutrient-rich soil to your existing soil to help prepare it and make it better for your fig trees.

Protect From The Cold

Fig trees are easy to grow and do well in warm climates, but they are susceptible to frost damage and cold weather damage. You should make sure the fig trees are planted early enough in the year that they are strong enough to survive the winter. You also want to add plenty of mulch around the bases of the trees to protect the roots from the snow and ice.

Harvest The Fruit

When it comes time to harvest the figs, you need to do so at the right time. Figs are only good when they are ripe and you will need to check them often to find out when they start to soften. Once you notice that the figs are softening, you can pick them. Once picked the figs will stop ripening and can be enjoyed. You can also store them in a cool place for several days if desired.

Prune The Trees

Before the trees begin to grow you must prune them. Pruning requires the removal of dead limbs, leaves, and buds and allows new and healthy ones to grow in their place. You should prune each season and it is best to do so before the new leaves and limbs begin to grow. Pruning also helps to shape the trees and motivates them to grow larger and healthier.
