Ficus carica is a well known deciduous tree which produces delicious edible figs and is hardy in the UK. Hard frosts may cut this tree back to the ground but will re-grow from root level in spring. Planting against a south-facing wall or sheltered location will help. Ficus carica is a very easy fig tree to grow and has been grown in Britain for thousands of years. Fig trees respond very well to pruning and can be kept at any desired height by an annual trim. Figs grow well in all soils except very poorly-drained. The leaves have 3-5 attractive lobes per leaf and they are best grown in a pot or in the ground with a barrier to restrict root growth. This will produce better fruit than if left un-restricted.
