About Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig

What to do when a dormant plant arrives:

  1. Unpackage on arrival and water
  2. Your plant will be ready to be planted in the landscape or in a container on arrival, or if you wish you can keep your new plant in its container until spring that is ok too
    • If planting in the landscape
      • Consider using a root stimulating fertilizer to get your plant working hard establishing its root system during the winter months
      • Use a heavy Layer of mulch to protect the unestablished roots from frost 
  3. Dormant plants do require some watering: once a week should be sufficient 
  4. When Spring arrives and your plant begins showing signs of new growth increase your watering schedule to 2 times every 7 to ten days until established, then water as needed. Apply a slow-release granular fertilizer to give your plant a great start

The new Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig from the Southern Living Plants is a winning addition to any landscape or garden! Figs are one of those fruits that you need to grow to fully appreciate. This is because figs only last a few days after being picked, making them difficult to keep fresh.

If you plant the Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig, you’ll find yourself laden every year with delicious dark purple figs with rich strawberry-red centers. This fruit is smooth and delightfully sweet, and you’ll get to enjoy it in both spring, as well as fall. In addition, figs are fantastic for your health, as they are high in fiber, and contain magnesium, copper, potassium, and calcium.

Furthermore, dark green leaves with deep lobes attract attention even when this shrub lacks fruit. Use it as an eye-catching accent, a fantastically textured low-hedge, or a unique mass planting.

This shrub is deciduous, meaning it will go dormant every winter, and return with a vengeance every spring. Expect it to reach 4-6′ high x 3-4′ wide once matured.

The Little Miss Figgy is more cold hardy than other figs and is capable of growing from USDA Zones 7-10. However, this shrub also has an impressive heat tolerance, making it perfect for southern gardeners as well.

Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig Care

Plant this dwarf fig in Full Sun for best results, anything less will result in low fruit production.

This fig doesn’t have strict soil requirements and is even capable of growing in heavy clay soils. Consequently, if planted in clay soil, be sure not to over-water it. Weekly waterings may be required during dry spells.

Fertilize in spring with a slow-release balanced fertilizer to get the most growth and fruit as possible from your Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig.

    I contacted customer service when I hadn’t received my plant within two weeks because of a FedEx issue . Christy quickly and kindly responded and had another sent out immediately. Christy is also quite helpful in answering any questions you may have via email. I have transplanted my Little Miss Figgy into a larger container and she is quite happy, just over a week after receiving her. 🙂

    We love our Miss Figgy! It arrived packaged well flushed with leaves. It lost quite a few leaves, but within 3 weeks the tree had more than replenished the leaves with new growth and many figs! We proudly display Miss Figgy on our sunny porch for everyone to see.
