One of the great things about the Chicago Hardy Fig Tree is that it is relatively easy to care for. It prefers full sun and well-draining soil, and can even tolerate some drought once established. Pruning is also important to maintain the tree’s shape and encourage fruit production.

If you are container-growing your fig, watch the soil moisture closely. Water when the soil is dry about 2″ beneath the soil’s surface. Containers dry out much more quickly than in-ground plantings do. This is especially important during the heat of the summer!

When watering a container-grown hardy fig, water until moisture comes out of the pot’s drainage holes. If you waited too long to water and the soil is very dry, it may pour straight through. If this happens, dampen the soil, then wait a couple minutes and repeat with a more thorough watering. This gives the soil time to absorb moisture.

Hardy fig prefers organically-rich, well-draining soil. Most loamy soils are a good choice as they remain moist but not wet.

Work some good compost into the planting hole when planting. Your fig prefers enriched soil. Mulch well around the tree to keep the soil moist.

Fig trees are tolerant of lightly-acidic to neutral conditions. For the best and sweetest fruit, most growers aim for a range of 6.0-6.5 pH.

Drop the plant level to the soil, Water the tree as you back fill soil to remove air pockets. Cover the new soil with mulch to retain moisture and keep weeds away. Fig trees are container friendly, you may keep it in its existing container and replant once a year.

LIGHT – Full Sun, bright light is optimal and will encourage a higher rate of growth. If intended for indoor use bright light is recommended.

FERTILIZING – No need to fertilize right away, We fertilize our plants during the production phase with slow release fertilizer which can last an additional 2-3 months supplying residual nutrients to the plant. Once you do decide to fertilize You may use a slow release granular fertilizer 180 days duration, fertilize during spring or fall.

While they like rich soil, an annual application of compost in spring is usually enough. Pull back the mulch and apply an inch or two of compost. Cover the compost again with the mulch and let it break down into the soil.



PRUNNING is not needed until the tree matures into its 2nd or 3rd year of life. You may begin to prune at some point to keep the plant healthy and control the height, since the tree can reach 20ft in height and 20ft in width, pruning is recommended in order to keep the fruits within reach.

INSECTS OR DESEASES – In the event that scale, mealy bugs, or mites are found to affect the plant, they can be controlled by applying horticultural neem oil that can be sprayed directly onto the insects, A second and third treatment, when using oils, will be necessary. Space out the sprays at 2 weeks intervals to break up the mealybug life cycle.
