The easy-to-grow, trouble free and enduringly popular fig tree makes a stunning ornamental garden feature and produces bountiful crops of succulent fruits. Native to warm, Mediterranean climates, it thrives in sheltered positions with lots of sunshine and becomes drought tolerant once fully established. Forming a large shrub or deciduous tree (depending on pruning), it boasts large, lush, deeply-lobed almost maple-like fragrant leaves which sometimes develop a rustic appearance in autumn, as well as beautiful smooth crinkly light bark. They are perfect for container growing and will produce more succulent fruit than you can possibly eat once fully grown. Ficus Brown Turkey is the best and only variety that will reliably grow outdoors in most parts of the UK.
