STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

Plant fig trees in loamy soil and in a northern exposure. They need plenty of sunlight and room in order to grow and thrive. Fertilize once a year. Fig trees only require light pruning which should be done in late winter.

Fig Twig

I’m taking good care of my new twig that has two buds on two long stems. It is planning to be an indoor plant. I’ve got a plant light on a timer making sure the fig twig gets enough daylight in winter. I’m very excited and hoping to see figs this summer. I bought one for my son in law as well.


Very prompt delivery, with a stunning tree. Made a very special gift. I will be buying one for myself shortly.
