How and when should I fertilize a fig tree to maximize yield?
Posted by Ronsung on November 11, 2018
There are many varieties of figs so first make sure you have one that is right for your climate. The best time to fertilize Is when you start to see signs of new growth in the spring. Then use a balanced plant food such as slow release Osmocote Plus. Apply at the rates listed on the package. A slow release plant food is recommended for figs. It is important that you not use a high nitrogen plant food (such as a lawn fertilizer) because this can encourage lots of fig leaves and little or no fruit. Keep growing, Marianne Binetti
