If you have a nice sunny wall, plant it in front of that and train it up the wall - you should get great fresh figs off it if the wall is south facing. They need hard pruning in winter, can be grown in a large pot, but the growths are quite floppy and need some kind of support.

Now, now Ladybug - have you ever eaten a fresh fig? Cos I always said eugh, I don't like figs - until someone gave me a fresh one, and it was delicious.
Also, you can tell if its south facing or not without a compass - sun comes up in the east, goes down in the west, so if the sun's on your right when it comes up, that means your garden is north facing, if on the left, its south facing.

Hmm, now that I don't fancy, Bertiefox - if it tastes anything like the filling in fig rolls, that's just how I hate figs to be!
