How to water fig tree

Watering Fig Trees - Stark Bro's

The watering needs of fig trees is dependent on how it is planted. Use the following guidelines to make sure you fulfill your tree’s watering needs.

NOTE: This is part 8 in a series of 10 articles. For a complete background on how to grow fig trees, we recommend starting from the beginning.

Container-Grown Guidelines

If your fig tree is growing in a container it will require watering more frequently. The best way to determine if your container needs water is to check the soil by inserting your finger into it. If the feels dry, water your container.

Ground-Planting Guidelines

Unless you’re in an area where irrigation is usually needed for normal plant growth, you probably won’t need to water after the first growing season. Until then, follow these steps to get your new trees off to a great start.

  • If summer brings about an inch of rainfall every 10 days or so, you won’t need to use the hose. But if it gets really dry, you can give your new tree a good, thorough soaking. The best way to do this is to let your garden hose trickle slowly. This gives the water a chance to soak in instead of running off. You can also use a soaker hose to water several trees at once. Give your tree enough water to soak the ground all around the roots.
  • It’s important to note that even if you’re in the midst of a brown-lawn drought, you don’t want to water too much. Once every 10 days or two weeks is plenty. Worse than dry, thirsty roots is waterlogged, drowning roots.

The Ultimate Guide to Watering Your Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant

Watering your houseplants can be overwhelming.

You’ve probably heard that fiddle leaf figs are hard to grow or finicky, which in large part is due to their specific watering requirements. If you water your plant too much (which is pretty common), you will kill it. If you don’t water enough, it will suffer. What’s a plant owner to do?

Diagnose: Is Your Plant Getting Too Much or Too Little Water?

If you’re confused about whether your plant has been getting too much or too little water, there are some surefire ways to tell.

First, ask yourself the following questions about over-watering:

  1. Do you water more than once a week? If so, your plant is probably over-watered.
  2. Is the soil wet to the touch one inch below the surface? Stick your finger in and find out. If so, over-watering is likely. (Make sure to use a well-draining potting soil like this.)
  3. Do your plant’s leaves have dark spots or edges? This could signify too much water.
  4. Are their flies or a musty smell in your plant’s soil? Too much water is the culprit.

Now ask yourself the following questions about under-watering:

  1. Are the newest leaves smaller than the existing leaves? They may be lacking water or nutrients for growth.
  2. Is your plant dropping leaves? This can be caused by low humidity or thirst.
  3. Is the top inch of soil very dry? Your plant may be thirsty.
  4. Are the edges of your plant’s leaves yellow or brown? They may be dry.

If after answering these questions you’re still not sure whether you’re over- or under-watering your plant, read more about the symptoms to tell the difference.

However, because plant owners who worry about their plants a lot tend to over-water, you are probably over-watering. If you’re reading this article, you obviously care about your plant, so it’s likely you are watering too much rather than too little. A moisture meter is an essential tool to keep you in the know regarding your plant’s thirst.

We've designed a professional grade meter for home use!

Use our three-way meter to give you accurate readings on how much water to give them, whether they are in the right place for sunlight and soil pH values.

How Often You Should Water

The best thing you can do for your plant’s health is to water like clockwork and never let it dry out completely to the point that you see soil shrinkage, where the soil pulls away from the sides of the pot.

Soil shrinkage is a big problem, because the next time you water, the water runs between the soil and the pot down the sides and doesn’t actually get to the roots of your plant. The vicious cycle of erratic watering (alternating between over- and under-watering) can lead to the death of your plant.

The good news is that there’s a foolproof way to water your fiddle leaf fig plant just the right amount: they only need to be watered once a week!

Set a calendar reminder to water your plant no more than once a week.

If you stick with your once-a-week schedule, your plant will get used to the conditions and really thrive. The best part about watering your plant once a week is that it will give you the confidence to know you’re not over- or under-watering your plant. Now you don’t have to second-guess yourself or worry!

Of course, this schedule will only work if your plant has proper drainage.

Make sure your plant is potted properly and drains completely after each watering. To check, insert a wooden skewer to the bottom of the pot and make sure it’s not wet before you water. (A moisture meter can be a big help here!) If the soil is wet a week after you watered last, you need to improve your drainage in a hurry. (You may need to repot your plant.)

You don’t need to drench your plant to give it enough water.

To keep things simple, water your plant the same amount each week.

For plants that measure less than 2 feet from the soil to the tallest leaves, water 1 cup each week. For plants that are greater than 2 feet tall, water with 2 cups of water each week. If your plant is between 3 and 6 feet tall, use 3 cups of water. More than 6 feet tall? Water with 4 cups of water each week or just until your container drains.

Never let your plant sit in water, and make sure your container fully drains each time you water.

How often to water figs in the summer in the open field, the rules for watering a tree during fruiting, water requirements and useful tips from gardeners

Figs are a tropical fig tree. It is grown in Russian gardens and orchards in open ground, planted on warm and fertile lands. Fig fruits are valued for their beneficial qualities and vitamin composition, and are also used in cooking - fragrant homemade jam or fig pies are prepared. One of the necessary conditions for growing an exotic tree is competent summer watering. How often to water figs in the summer and how to do it correctly, we will consider in the article.

Should figs be watered in summer

Figs are watered throughout the summer. The plant loves water, but does not tolerate waterlogging. During irrigation, it is important that the water penetrates deep to the roots, and does not remain on the surface of the soil and does not create a dense crust under the influence of the sun.

Gardeners pay attention to weather conditions: the hotter the summer, the more often and more abundantly the figs are watered. The variety, age of the plant, ripening period and growing characteristics also matter.

Regular and competent watering guarantees the correct development of the crop and rich yields. Drought causes the shoots to dry out and lose their ability to bear fruit, the plant becomes sick and dies.

In addition to watering, it is recommended to pay attention to sprinkling in the summer - with its help, the optimum level of humidity is maintained for the proper development of the tree.

How often to water

How often and how much to water depends on many factors. Young trees are moistened weekly , spending 5 to 10 liters of water per plant.

Older - less common : apply about 8-10 liters of water once every 2 weeks.

If there are signs of drying out (withered shoots, gray-green leaves, deformed fruits), the amount of water is increased to 15 liters per tree once a week. If the summer is rainy, reduce.

Water Requirements for Irrigation

Suitable water for irrigation is soft, chlorine- and lime-free, pre-settled in the sun. Its temperature must be at least +20°C. Experienced gardeners recommend using melted or rain water.

Simple drain structures are installed on the site, through which moisture enters empty plastic or iron barrels. Rain and melt water is enriched with natural oxygen, making figs less likely to get sick.

If the summer is dry and there is no rain water, use tap water. The disadvantage is that it contains chlorine and lime and is hard. To soften water, gardeners add 2 drops of lemon juice to 10 liters. Apple cider vinegar is also used to soften - 10 drops are dissolved in 1 liter of water.

Attention! Do not water figs with water from open water bodies - swamps, rivers or lakes. It may contain dangerous fungi and pathogens that cause tree diseases. Because of such watering, figs will become ill with coral blotch, anthracnose or gray rot.

What can be added

In order for watering to bring double benefits, once a month gardeners use not ordinary water, but an infusion of herbs: chamomile, calendula, nettle, burdock, tansy, sage.

The procedure increases the number of ovaries on the tree and prevents the appearance of pests: whiteflies, greenhouse thrips, earwigs, nematodes, spider mites. Moisturize figs in the early morning, before sunrise.

To increase the yield, figs are watered with an infusion of banana peels. It is poured with water and infused for 3-4 days, after which it is brought under a tree into specially prepared holes 8 cm deep. Such irrigation is aimed not only at moisturizing, but also at nourishing the tree and replacing organic top dressing.

How to water figs correctly in summer

Among all types of watering for figs, regular (root), sprinkling and liquid dressings are more suitable than others.

It is recommended to alternate between them so that the moisture content of the plant is balanced .

Regular watering is used in the morning hours before the onset of heat or in the evening after sunset, when the temperature drops and the sun's rays do not cause burns.

Water is brought into special holes near the tree or under the trunk. The first method is preferable, because moisture is distributed more evenly, and does not accumulate in one place. After the procedure, the earth is loosened to saturate it with oxygen. Next, the figs are mulched - they pour hay, sawdust, small gravel or dry leaves under the tree. Mulch retains moisture.

Irrigation is a method of watering with the help of a special machine. The procedure has a positive effect on the water-air regime of the soil, due to which water does not stagnate on the surface and is gradually absorbed. Drops of different sizes and with different intensity are distributed over the fig tree. The disadvantage of sprinkler irrigation is that it is only suitable for large plantations, and the maintenance of machines is several times more expensive than conventional irrigation.

Attention! For small garden plots, summer residents use a spray bottle with water to distribute moisture over plants in the morning or evening. The main thing is not to do this when the sun is shining - leaf burns are guaranteed.

Liquid feed can be organic or mineral. Gardeners use manure, superphosphate, potassium salt, urea, wood ash. The frequency of application of liquid fertilizers is 1 time in 2-3 weeks. Organics and minerals alternate. Top dressing is bred in a bowl and poured under the root or into the holes.

The figs are mulched in order to absorb nutrients faster. The thickness of the mulch layer should be 3-4 cm. Because of this, figs slow down in growth, become covered with burns, or die altogether.

A few common mistakes:

  1. The tree is watered often, but not enough. This method leads to the fact that water is available only to part of the plant, it does not penetrate deeper to the roots. The surface layers of the soil dry out quickly, becoming unsuitable for growing a capricious exotic tree. Watering should be balanced. General recommendation: pour 10 liters per plant once every 2 weeks.
  2. A tree is watered from a hose with a strong jet of water. Even if this does not lead to serious diseases or a decrease in yield, the decorative qualities of the plant will deteriorate. It is better to buy a watering can and carefully water the figs, avoiding damage to the roots and ripening fruits.
  3. Watered so that a significant part of the water is on the leaves. It shouldn't be like this - water is meant to feed the roots, not the leaves. The jet is directed directly under the root. And you can wet the leaves during sprinkling.

Watering figs when planting

Figs are planted in dachas in nutritious and loose soils with neutral acidity. A pre-planting pit is fertilized and a drainage layer is laid so that moisture does not stagnate.

The first time the figs are moistened immediately after planting - pour a bucket of water under the seedling and mulch it. The next time the plant is watered only after 2-3 weeks.

During flowering and fruiting

During flowering, figs are watered according to their age. Up to 10 liters of water are spent on a tree up to 2 years old, up to 15 liters of water on plants aged from 2 to 10 years. After 10 years, figs are watered depending on whether they bear fruit or not. If the plant is healthy and productive, 10-15 liters are spent on it.

The procedures are stopped 10 days before fruiting and at the time of harvest. After watering once and preparing for winter - cut and cover. The next procedure takes place only in the spring.

Advice from experienced gardeners

Irrigation of figs begins at the end of May. This is not done before, because there are still reserves of rain and melt water in the soil.

In addition to this rule, experienced gardeners share other useful recommendations:

  1. After each watering, the soil is loosened. The procedure serves as a prevention of diseases and pests, increases the moisture capacity of the soil and prevents the development of weeds.
  2. Summer residents use sprinkling only if the weather is hot. If the climate is damp and humid, the procedure is not applied.
  3. Water the figs with melt, rain or tap water. Suitable temperature is around +20°C.
  4. Do not water the plant during fruiting and 10 days before it.


Easy ways to propagate figs from cuttings at home

Step-by-step instructions on how to properly cover figs for the winter and prepare the tree for cold weather


Watering figs in the open ground is carried out on average 1 time in 1.5-2 weeks. Up to 10 liters of water are spent on a young tree, about 15 liters on an adult. Preliminarily, the water is defended and heated in the sun, if it is cold.

Once a month, liquid top dressing is used instead of watering - an infusion of herbs or banana peels is brought under the tree. If the summer is dry and hot, sprinkling is carried out - drops of water are sprayed over the plant. After the procedure, the earth is loosened and mulched. Proper tree care guarantees a rich harvest.

  • Overwintering of figs in the open field
  • Possible difficulties in growing figs

Russian gardeners are not content with growing traditional pears and apples in gardens. They also experiment with subtropical plants. One of them is the biblical fig tree. Today, the focus is on the fig tree, care and cultivation in open ground, pruning and other agrotechnical activities when cultivated in the conditions of Central Russia.

Figs: care and cultivation in the open ground of the middle Russian latitudes

Figs are successfully cultivated in barrels, where they bear fruit. But now the bush has been moved to dachas and gardens. Before you start growing figs in open ground, choose a variety. They are guided by the cold resistance of the culture and the method of pollination.

Fig fruits

In the southern regions, in the homeland of the plant, it is pollinated by blastophage wasps. The plant has an amazing feature: male and female flowers live on different trees. The flower is inside the fruit. Wasps climb inside it and carry pollen from flower to flower.

There is no blatosphage in Russia. There are tree beetles that partially perform the function of wasps. But you can’t really rely on them, therefore, in most regions of Russia, only self-pollinating, parthenocarpic varieties are suitable for cultivation:

  • “Crimean Black”. High-yielding, grows in the Crimea. In the middle Russian latitudes, they are grown only with shelter for the winter.
  • "Abkhazian purple". The fruits are elongated and ribbed. Fruits twice in the south. The first wave - the weight of the fruit is 80 g, the second - 50 g.
  • "Pomorie". Fig bush, early ripening. The bushes are powerful, the fruits are yellow-green - up to 100 g.
  • "Early Gray". The fruits are round pear-shaped. The color is green, with a strong waxy coating, which gives a gray tint.
  • "Dalmatian". Two harvests, large fruits. The skin is yellow, the flesh is reddish.
  • Turkish Brown. Red-brown fruits, pear-shaped. Weigh 100 g.

Attention! The listed varieties withstand frosts down to -10°C without shelter. From more severe colds they are insulated.

Figs in the garden

How to care for figs

When and how to plant figs depends on the region.

Planting dates

Is a fig a fruit or a berry? What is a fig or fig?

Figs are heat-loving plants, so they should be planted in spring. By winter, it will take root and endure frosts more easily.

In the Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, already in March, the earth warms up so much that it is possible to plant figs.

The further north, the further the landing date moves towards summer. In the Moscow region, the threat of night frosts will pass only by May, then the fig is planted.

In Siberia, early self-fertile varieties are grown, because there is a short growing season. The soil for seedlings is ready only in the second half of May.

Place of planting

How and where to plant figs in the country so that they take root in harsh Russian conditions, experienced gardeners suggest.

The place is chosen bright, warm, without drafts. The plant is protected from northern and eastern winds. Tall buildings and fences should not obscure the culture.

Figs need good drainage. It is preferable to plant on a hillock. If the soils are caked and do not pass moisture well, a good layer of stones is laid out at the bottom of the planting hole.

Soil for figs

Southern figs should be grown in suitable soil. In relation to the soil, the tree is unpretentious. But he does not like peat soils.

Poor soils are not planted - they are fertilized with organic matter.

The best option is light soils with humic acids.

Land for landing is prepared as follows:

  1. The top layer is removed to the bottom of the planned pit or trench.
  2. The excavated soil is mixed with sand for air permeability. Add humus and leafy soil.

Attention! You can buy a ready mix of soils specifically for figs. This is "Lemon", "Rose". They are added to the dug ground. Shop soils, or land from the garden, are preferable for a young plant. In swampy and saline soil, the fig tree will not survive. If the soil in the area is acidic, a glass of ash is brought under the seedling.

Planting figs

When a place is chosen, a seedling (two-year-old) is bought, it remains to figure out how to plant figs in the garden in open ground.

  1. The pit is dug out. Depth - up to 1 meter. On the sides 80 × 80 cm. The root system of the plant is growing rapidly to the damage of the ground part. Therefore, the walls of the pit are laid out with limiters. It can be a brick or vertically placed slate of a suitable size.
  2. Drainage is poured on the bottom with a layer of 30 cm - small stones, expanded clay, broken bricks.
  3. Prepared soil is poured on top of it. A seedling is placed in the center. They tilt a little to the south side, the roots are directed to the north - by winter it will be easier to bend down and cover the shoots.
  4. The pit is covered with the remaining earth, tamped, and the figs are watered. 4 buckets of warm water are poured onto one seedling.
  5. Next, the ground is mulched with sawdust, shavings.

Planting figs in open ground

For the convenience and good wintering of the fig tree, young trees are planted in trenches. They dig to a depth of 1.5 m, 1 m wide and make drainage, pour mounds of earth. A plant is planted for each, covered with nutrient soil, watered. The trees are below ground level, therefore, mulched in winter, they easily endure the cold.

Care of figs after planting

To give the plant a good start, you need to know how to water the newly planted figs, feed, prune.


Figs - growing at home, how to plant

Figs - moisture-loving culture. A young tree needs frequent irrigation. Watered weekly. Depending on the growth of the seedling, from 5 to 10 liters of water are poured under each.

The following year, the overwintered plant is moistened 2 times a month. Norma is a bucket of water under a bush.

Important! While the fruits are ripe, the tree is not watered. After fruiting, irrigate for the last time.

The roots of the plant are located below the surface of the soil, so they must not dry out. Otherwise, the leaves will begin to turn yellow and fall off, the fruits will stop pouring.

In spring, there is enough moisture in the soil from rain and melt water. Figs are not irrigated at this time. Watering starts from the second half of May. Finish in the fall, after the collection of figs.

Top dressing

The fig tree is planted in an unfamiliar climate, so it needs fertilizer. Gardeners need to know how to feed figs in open ground.

The first, at the beginning of the growing season, is nitrogen fertilizing to increase green mass. This is the answer to beginner gardeners who are concerned about how to feed figs in the spring after a dormant period.

Phosphates are applied in the summer to help the fruits ripen.

Vine growers know how to fertilize figs at the end of the growing season so that the fruits ripen. The growing conditions for these crops are similar. A rich harvest is harvested when potash fertilizers are applied.

Humic acid is also added, sprayed with nutrient solutions 2 times a month. Microfertilizers and manure are applied twice per season (5 g per 1 liter of water)

Pruning, crown formation

The crown is formed by spring pruning. Remove damaged branches, those that grow inward and are crossed.

Overgrown branches should be pruned in summer. They are shortened at the level of the fifth leaf so that the lateral processes go.

Pruning, shaping the crown of figs

Propagation of figs

Anemones - cultivation and care in the open field

Fig tree propagated by traditional methods:

  • Seed propagation. They are in fruit. Remove, wash on a fine sieve with water. Give a day to dry on a napkin. Then the seed is sown in a container with nutrient soil, sprayed. Covered with a film, the seeds will germinate for 15-20 days. Further, when 2-3 leaves appear, the seedlings are transferred to other containers. Take care of like an adult plant.
  • Cuttings. Lignified cuttings are cut from a bush that is 3-4 years old. Wet the juice that stood out at the cut point with a napkin. Allow the cutting to dry for several hours. Rooted in water or sand. After the roots appear, they are transplanted into a separate pot.
  • Layering. Bend down a young branch, dig in the ground. The place is being watered. After 3 weeks, the layering will take root. It is separated from the mother bush, transplanted.

Of these methods, propagation by cuttings is considered successful by gardeners.

Wintering of figs in open ground

Wintering of figs in shelter. Although winter-hardy varieties have been bred, it is not worth taking risks without unnecessary need. The plant may freeze and die.

Shelter of figs for the winter

Shelter is done like this:

  1. Water the shrub so that the branches are flexible. Bend several branches to the ground, fix. After 4-5 days, the same is done with several more branches. So, in 3-4 doses, all shoots will be bent down.
  2. When frosts come and the plant loses a leaf, the branches are wrapped with breathable covering material: burlap, agrofibre.
  3. Bent and wrapped branches are fixed. In winter they throw snow on them.

Important! It is impossible to cover figs with polyethylene - fungal diseases will begin.

If the fig is in the form of a tree, then a mini greenhouse is built over it. The trunk circle is mulched with a thick layer of sawdust and humus. A frame is installed above the tree, sheathed with polyethylene.

Plants open with the first warmth.

Possible difficulties in growing figs

When all agrotechnical measures are observed, and for some reason the figs in the garden do not bear fruit, this causes alarm for gardeners.

Possible causes:

  • little light;
  • lacks moisture in the soil;
  • crown frozen in winter;
  • insufficient nutrients in the soil;
  • dense branches;
  • was attacked by pests.

These factors may explain why figs fall off before they mature.

Figs - a resident of the subtropics. Varieties adapted to the harsh winters of Central Russia have been developed. But growing a culture is not easy. Correctly planted in a pit or trench. They choose a place in the garden, prepare nutrient soil. Then they water and fertilize, cut and form a crown. They fight pests and shelter for the winter. Only after that they count on the harvest of fruits and home-made preparations from them.
