Ficus Brown Turkey is one of the oldest fruits in cultivation and produces an abundance of sweet rich fruit ready for cropping from August to October. Ficus Brown Turkey is best grown against a south or south west facing wall/garage wall where in long, hot summers it will produce an abundant crop of brown/purple, pear-shaped fruit with red flesh. Pruning: Prune into shape in spring but mind that the first crop is borne on last season's growth. You will receive an over-wintered garden ready plant in an 9cm pot, which is at least 1 year old. Your plant can be planted straight out into the garden but may benefit for growing on in a larger pot for a few weeks first.

Our Plug Plants

Our plug plants are supplied in four sizes; small, medium, large and jumbo plugs....
The foliage height will differ depending on variety.

Small Plugs - Trays of 40
The most economical way to purchase your plants. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 2.3cm deep x 1.3cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Medium Plugs - Trays of 20
Our brassicas and lettuce are sold as medium plugs. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown for a short while on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 3cm deep x 2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Large Plugs - Packs of 5
Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants, individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4cm deep x 3.5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm depending on variety)

Jumbo  Plugs - Packs of 3
Our premium perennials are supplied as Jumbo plugs. These plans would benefit from potting into large pots (5” upwards”) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden.  Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm depending on variety)

Chosen by us because this Fig grows well in cooler climates, fruiting in late summer/autumn. Figs prefer a well-drained sunny site and once established should produce many fruits for years to come.

Growing in a container -

  • Once grown on, repot into a large container (60cm +) with a mixture of garden soil or soil based compost.  
  • Water well during the first year’s growth.
  • Plants may be brought inside into a cool spot during the winter months to help protect the new fruit buds. Otherwise cover the plant with fleece when a heavy frost is forecast.

Growing in the garden - 

  • Ensure the area is well dug over before planting and add some grit to the soil to aid drainage if your soil is particularly heavy.
  • Figs will grow into large trees if allowed to, so prune in early spring to keep the shape and control the growth.
  • Restricting the roots by building a ‘plant pit’ to contain the roots will help produce more fruits than roots.
  • Figs need to mature on the plants so keep an eye on them and pick them when they have ripened but before the birds get to them.
