Non-Bearing Fig Trees

Anonymous added on May 8, 2014 | Answered

Have 3 fig trees (really small bushes) about 8 years old that green out nice in spring, grow well, but never any fruit. The soil is good, as my irises, asparagus and a blueberry bush do well. What can I do? On a hill, drainage is always good. In fall the bushes die back; I remove the old stalks in spring. Please help me. Thanks.

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: If your soil is too acidic, you'll need to add some lime. Fig trees enjoy a soil pH of 6.0-6.5.
