Leigh Adam’s Fig Tree


I gave this fig tree start to my friend Leigh Adams – its amazing how well it is doing with a “heavy” wood mulch around it.  The logs retain water, keeping the soil moist and break down slowly over time – gently feeding the soil. An added bonus is that it deters animals from diggng around the fig tree.
