Fertilizing Fig Trees

If your fig tree is potted or grown in sand, regular fertilization is usually necessary. A well-balanced fruit tree fertilizer like Stark® Tre-Pep® is recommended. Apply according to label instructions.

Fertilizing Tips

  • Be sure not to over-fertilize because excess nitrogen will encourage growth at the expense of fruit production. This can often cause figs to ripen improperly, if at all.
  • If the branches of your fig tree grow less than one foot the previous year, you should fertilize.
