No, not at all. I'm over in Lowestoft. The tree came from Urban Jungle I think I'll battle it tomorrow and add some grit to the mixture to see if that helps

A tree that size must be 15 years old..not even going to ask how much it cost!
Hi Santy,I have fig trees all over the place, all in pots, and I would never put one in a pot like yours.There are two reasons for this. 1) for some reason I find that my plants never do well in glazed pots, probably due to the one drainage hole at the base which tends to mean plants get a bit waterlogged and 2) When we get stormy weather, pots with narrow bases can be dragged over by the weight of the plant resulting in a smashed pot and the need to find another container at once.I know fig trees are supposed to be starved of room so that they don't run amok and produce leaves to the exclusion of fruit but I would prefer to see your fig tree in a slightly larger planter, preferably with a wider base. It's a good idea to raise the pot up on feet (or bricks) as figs do not like to get waterlogged which can happen in the colder, winter months.To be honest, your fig tree isn't looking too healthy but this is the time of year to take cuttings.....they root very well in very wet vermiculite.....the one time when waterlogging seems to suit a fig. A bit of shade might help your plant, especially this weekend as the temperature is due to be quite high, and maybe try to shield it from coastal winds.
