Fig Tree 'Rouge de Bordeaux'

Fig Tree 'Rouge de Bordeaux'

Fig Tree 'Rouge de Bordeaux' Code: FGS004

£21.95 21.9500 In Stock New

Ficus carica 'Rouge de Bordeaux'

A delicious red fleshed fig with medium to large sized fruit. The skin is purple with a violet bloom but it's the superb, rich flavour that puts this variety in a class of its own. Although cold-resistant, it does best in a greenhouse in cooler locations. It can be grown outside in the south given a warm, sheltered site.


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Season: Aug - Sept.


Plant size: 3 litre pot.


Available for delivery: all year.


 

Although, fig trees are associated with Mediterranean countries, with the correct choice of variety and given a sunny, sheltered site, they can be grown outside throughout the UK with great success. Figs picked fresh from the garden are juicy, sweet and fragrant. They are very useful for covering large areas such as a south or south-west facing wall or fence and trained as a fan they will eventually reach 2m (6ft 6in) high and 3-3.6m (10-12ft) wide. They also make ideal container plants on a sun-drenched patio, where they will make a very attractive garden feature. Fig trees require root restriction and for ease they can be planted in a Root Control Bag.

 

Our fig trees are supplied in containers and are available for despatch throughout the year.

Rootex Root Control Bag (45 Litre)
£14.95 inc. p&pRootex Root Control Bag (45 Litre)A Rootex bag will produce a tree with more fibrous roots, reduced vigour and will promote early fruiting. Rootex is a special patented copper coated fabric. When the root tip comes into contact with the copper it stops growing, the apical dominance is interrupted and new feeder (fibrous) roots develop further back towards the tree. This prevents roots from circling and enables better absorption of water and nutrients. Rootex is permeable, allowing water and nutrients to pass through it. These medium sized bags are ideal for smaller trees and figs, which benefit from root restriction. A tree grown in a Rootex bag can be transplanted to another site without damage to the root system even 10 years after it was originally planted. Width 30cm x length 30cm x depth 45cm. Capacity: 45 litres.Buy Now
