Solve me this question
I buy most of my fig trees from ediblelandscaping nursery. They are good professionals. They say in their planting instructions space the trees 8' to 10'. For me that is impossible because my back yard is nothing but sand and clay. To make any plants grow in my back yard I make raised beds although very expensive but to give my plants good soil mixture i incur the cost and I have been rewarded. Coming to my question I space my fig trees about 3 feet apart but I don't want bushes I want trees. The trees are very healthy and some are 8 feet high and this is the maximum height I allow them to grow to, I have good production but I am thinking am I missing more production by spacing them close. I have 24 trees if I follow their method of spacing I would not have space for may be 4 trees. What every body else does?
