Ficus carica ‘Little Miss Figgy’

Pot size #2

Only growing 4-8′ tall by 3-4′ wide, Little Miss Figgy is our most compact fig, making it ideal for container gardening – a necessity in our climate. Very productive, figs are small and sweet in flavour. Will set two crops a year – once in the late spring, and another in the fall. Figs turn dark purple at maturity.

The basic requirements of a productive container-grown fig tree are as follows:

  • a container with drainage (at minimum a 5 gallon container – we prefer to use 22″ Patio Planters)
  • a mixed blend of topsoil, potting soil, and compost
  • a location that receives more than 6 hours of direct sunlight a day (more is better) from May through September
  • a warm temperature from June through September (can be outside or inside, recommended  18 degrees Celsius or warmer, on average
  • an indoor space to overwinter in dormancy (we recommend a temperature between 0-10 degrees Celsius to ensure dormancy)
