We are trying to grow Fig's and our luck is not good. Slow to come out and once it does not much happening. The fig trees are really looking pale yellow green. Have kept them well watered not sure of what is wrong. Out soil is very poor. Any advise???? Thanks :?:

Figs can handle poor soil. Make sure it's not planted too deep and if it's a new transplant, water it weekly only. Use Howard's sick tree treatment found under 'organic advice/library'.

As said previously, plant them not too deep, water daily. It will help if you have aerated the soil too, if you have a big place and manual aeration is not an option, rent an aerator from a tool rental to get the job done.

They do not need to be watered daily.
