The Q&A Archives: Deep Roots

Question: Does a climbing fig have deep roots or would something else provide better protection against soil erosion?

Answer: Your climbing fig will develop an extensive root system if you water it deeply but infrequently while it is becoming established. It has a fibrous root system which makes it suitable for holding soil on slopes. Best wishes with your garden!
