Friday was dull and cool with a north easterly wind blowing which didn't do anything to improve matters.
I've been planning to repot our potted fig trees for sometime now. They have spent the last few years in the greenhouse and have produced a small crop each year.
Now we have a nice sheltered spot in the courtyard garden I thought it might be a good time to see how they get on outside. I thought growing in the greenhouse they might produce two crops a year but that hasn't been the case so I'm hoping they'll produce a single crop outside.
They certainly took some getting out of their old pots although I didn't think that they appeared too pot bound. They're both now potted on and in their new location.
I couldn't decide whether to cut the main stem of the smaller fig back by about a half.
It has grown out of proportion to the rest of the tree. Cutting it back would keep the tree in a more compact form. I'm going to give it a bit more thought.
