Hello everyone !

I live in the little island of Malta in the middle of the Mediterrenean sea.

I bought a fig tree (Ficus Carica)that I want to transplant in my field but I need some expert advice of where is the best place and other things I may have to do to obtain the best result.

Our summer is very hot and dry with temperatures sometimes jumping the 100F.

I am attaching two photos one of the tree in the pot and the other of the spot I am planning to plant.

Will appreciate if anyone who have previous ecperience with fig trees can get in touch.

Thanks alot

Edible figs grow to 7 - 10 m wide and high. To give it space, you would have to plant it at least 5 meters from the walls, 7 or 8 would be better.
