You may remember my post last year about A Bargain Fig which I bought from Morrisons for the princely sum of £2. I thought I'd give you a bit of an update and also ask for your opinion.
This is the same fig tree now, as you can see the branches, which were definitely growing skyward when I bought it, are now spreadeagle. They've just grown this way, I don't know why.
I'm wondering if this is normal, should the branches have splayed as they have and will more upright branches begin to grow? It does look like new upright growth is springing from one of the horizontal branches already.
I'm not sure what to do now, whether to leave it be to grow as it wants to, or whether to try and train the branches in to a more upright position. What would you do?
There's one thing though, it was a tiny little twig when I bought it and it's put on quite a bit of growth in its first year. The leaves are beautiful and glossy.
I think it may be some time before I can expect any fruit though.
