I moved into a rental house in April and would love some help with a fig tree.
The house is 150 years old, and all the plantings are horribly neglected (vine covered, weedy, overcrowded.) I didn't realize there was a fig until May, when it was covered in breba. I immediately fertilized, watered, and weeded around it. The figs have grown to what I assume is full size---none ripe, though. But now it's making more breba. Is this OK? Is is bad?
I have already potted up some little baby plants around it to take with me when I leave, but I'd like to make this year as productive as possible. This is partly for the owner of the house, but mostly for me, to ease the pain of having to leave my own garden where my figs are being horribly neglected! : (
Any help would be appreciated!
