Product Information

Picking plump, juicy figs straight from a tree is one of life's greatest pleasures, especially when served up with some wafer thin slices of Parma ham and a drizzle of honey. Divine!

Boasting masses of large, pear-shaped fruit with deep red flesh that are ready for picking in late summer and early autumn, 'Little Miss Figgy' is perfect in a large pot.

Even before the fruit is ripe this dwarf variety adds a presence to the garden as branches are clothed with large, deeply lobed leaves.

Despite originating from warmer climates, this amazing compact fig is incredibly tough, easily shrugging off temperatures down to -15°C in the UK. Extremely drought tolerant when established, figs do best in a brightly lit, sunny spot.

Keep plants productive and compact by restricting roots by growing in large pots.

Care Information

Planting Advice for 'Little Miss Figgy'

  • Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen.
  • Plant in a large container filled with good quality, soil-based compost.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place at the same level at the pot. 

Aftercare Advice for your Ficus

If you’re planting in spring or summer, water well and regularly for the first few months.


Pruning Advice for 'Little Miss Figgy'

Prune to keep its shape and size. When pruning, aim for a balanced top that allows light into the centre of the canopy.

  • Prune twice a year:
    Early spring: remove any branches that spoil the shape, or any that are crossing or damaged, along with any suckers appearing from the ground or lower stem. If needed cut back one or two branches that have become too long and bare to a 5cm (2in) stub to stimulate new growth from the base of the branch.
    Early summer: pinch out the new growth at five or six leaves. Do not prune later growth.
