I live to the south of Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire. Somewhat overcome by the work needed in the garden, I share bits of it! Twitter @oldgreyheron

One of two embryonic fruits on the fig growing in a pot in the greenhouse. Our first two potential fruits. Any tips welcome!

keep it in a pot unless you want an enormous tree with lots of fruit :) mine is in a pot so not much fruit unfortunately, i think i counted five last year so will probably get it a larger pot :)

Thanks Sarah. Would you recommend moving it outdoors in the summer? It's only 1m tall at present. @Squares

No problem, i keep mine outside year round should be fine, was given mine by Greek friends some years back and was probably the same size ad yours, its always been outside :)
