feeding figs

Postby Beryl » Wed Jun 17, 2015 8:36 pm

My fig tree on the allotment is loaded with fruit this year and other than a good mulch in the winter I don't feed it. But the one I have at home in a pot is now about 4ft tall, looking very healthy but no fruit yet. I am sure I should be feeding it with something but what? Would ordinary tomato feed be sufficient? Would be grateful for any advice. Thanks.

Morning Beryl,
When in leaf I feed my fig with a general fertilizer
when watering and tomato feed when carrying figs, once a week.

Thanks Snooky, no figs on it yet so will use a general one.
