@deekay unfortunately they don't break down quickly enough for my mum and dads suburban yard. I've mowed them and raked into a pile and before it can even start to turn to mulch the wind blows it all over the lawn again. At my place I would leave them in a corner to rot slowly but Dad likes the more manicured look. I can't mow anymore so mum gets a chap in. Must tell him to get leaves next time. Haven't mowed for months. No rain. No need. 🍃👍🏻
@Shephes this one is prob 40 years old but I've known it this big for at least 20. It's at my parents 5 mins away. Yep don't plant it in the ground. Unless you have acreage. Lots of fig fruit. Once it flowers you might see fruit.
Good to know. Potted (caged) fig it stays. All that stands to reason. I have seen different ficus go crazy. Amazing they are sold as potted. If it survives the cold at my house. Last winter was an effort
