I have had a fig tree planted in my garden for 3 years, the 2nd year it had a few figs on it, but never bore any since. How can I help it with fruiting? I live in R.I.

This can happen quite frequently in climates such as this. The best way to prevent this in the future is to wrap them well over winter. It can also help to add a little phosphorus and potassium to the soil. Here is an article to help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/fig-tree-winter-wrapping.htm
