Getting Fruit on My Fig Tree

Zone New York | robannesnest added on September 30, 2012 | Answered

I just moved and my new house has a fig tree or bush (it's about 5 ft tall). I watched it grow all season but I didn't get one fig. Do fig trees need a second tree in order to bear fruit?

It may be a nitrogen/phosphorus imbalance in the soil. Too much nitrogen and too little phosphorus can result in little to no blooming, which means no fruit. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/fig-tree-is-producing-fruit.htm
