I think I have planted wrong ( not anywhere near what is on this website) what should I do

They can be late to leaf...where is your tree situated and do you protect it in winter and restrict its roots?
hello, it is in the garden , no for winter protection no for the root
sorry, im really clueless
Fig trees can grow in the UK but are not very hardy. They like well draining and confined roots. In bad winters covering them is a very good idea.
Scratch the bark on a branch with your finger nail to see if it is green underneath. Green is good, you just have to wait.
You should also be able to see some sort of leaf emerging or wanting to emerge from a bud.
hello, there is some buds coming through
Correction. Fig trees do not like having their roots confined. It is done to stop the tree producing lots of growth but not much fruit.
Confining the roots is done to give the tree the impression it might die - so it had better reproduce itself and make fruit.
I grew figs very successfully in West Wales against a west facing wall, and I know of several good fig trees in the area. It's wet hereabouts, but perhaps not too cold.
This site gives the best information re growing figs in the UK that I've ever found http://www.readsnursery.co.uk/fig-trees-for-gardens-and-greenhouses/
Also very helpful people and superb produce - I've no relationship with them other than as a very satisfied customer.
