    What size of pot for a fig?

    Not really since one was dug up on my allotment yesterday to make way for a new fence. Wouldn't have minded so much, but it wasn't really in their way.

    Urgent advice is required!!

    My thoughts would be that that is not the rootstock, but I'm no expert and stand to be corrected.

    I did know about the Honeysuckle, but I only bought it last summer and as Clueless1 has said its intent on going vertical at moment. I'm not sure yet whether it will remain in the pot. Just thought a little extra colour is never a bad thing. I'm thinking annuals might work now.

    Granular fertilizer in containers

    I use Growmore in containers for a spring feed . As above just a light sprinkling is OK - then lightly work it in with the point of a trowel .
