Fig growing is now possible in even the smallest of gardens - many popular varieties are large and too big for the average modern plot but this NEW variety, Little Miss Figgy, is a compact dwarf variety growing up to 1.2m/4ft - perfect for growing on the patio!

Leaves of this variety are dark, and noticeably deeply lobed, with each lobe more slender and more pointed than those of 'Violette de Bordeaux' from which it was bred – therefore creating a very attractive foliage plant even without the added bonus of fruit! Little Miss Figgy will produce a prolific crop of sweet, burgundy-coloured figs along the branches in summer, with each smooth skinned fig having a sweet, juicy flesh. The fruit it can produce is delicious baked with maple syrup and served with a dollop of mascarpone cheese - washed down with an espresso or liqueur…yum!

Easy to grow and its ideal for British gardens easily surviving temperatures of -15oC. This gorgeous compact little fig tree, providing a compact version of a full-sized specimen, makes a wonderful gift for yourself, a foodie or any aspiring fruit grower.

The 2ltr plants are, on average, a year older than 9cm potted varieties and due to the larger pot, the roots have more room to grow and develop which in turn allows them to absorb more nutrition, resulting in stronger and healthier plants
