You could inter-plant them with taller species to get a similar effect to that which you see in those images.HTHWobbly-John :blue thumb:

    What size of pot for a fig?

    Not really since one was dug up on my allotment yesterday to make way for a new fence. Wouldn't have minded so much, but it wasn't really in their way.

    Urgent advice is required!!

    My thoughts would be that that is not the rootstock, but I'm no expert and stand to be corrected.

    Granular fertilizer in containers

    I use Growmore in containers for a spring feed . As above just a light sprinkling is OK - then lightly work it in with the point of a trowel .
