Fig tree

Marian:
Hello everyone

I've been away from this this site for seven years... Living on a boat for ten years didn't help my gardening skills.. :happy7: We've moved off the boat and now live in bricks and mortar. We have a fig tree growing very close the property wall and I wonder if it should be moved. It's about five ft tall. Thanks for any help. 😊😊

Obelixx:
Growing figs against a wall is a good way to encourage fruiting because of the reflected heat.   Monty Don has one in his garden and there's a large one round the corner from us here with the wall still standing.   

pumpkinlover:
Welcome back. Fresh fig are delightful.

Obelixx:
Yes, if you can get them before the flipping starlings strip every single one before they even get ripe.

Marian:
Thank you all for your kind replies. :-)  Further to your advice, I will leave the fig tree in its current position. I suspect I will have to wait a while before the fruit appears. Cheers all. 😊
