    What's the question?  Your figs are looking just great ... well ahead of ours ... just don't let the tree dry out.  It needs free-draining soil but that doesn't mean that it isn't a thirsty plant.  A fortnightly dose of tomato feed is good too.

    Some of the figs seem to be going soft and becoming lighter in colour, whereas other figs seem to be ok, any ideas what could be wrong.  I have been giving it a weekly dose of seaweed .
