Figs Trees: A fig tree can be grown in a large pot. They do well in poor soil, but need a sunny, protected area. Trees tend to produce more fruit when their root systems are restricted, when planting in the ground, dig a hole about 3 feet wide and line with bricks. Mix plenty of bone meal in with the soil. Mulch fig trees in late spring with compost and water in dry weather while the fruit is growing. You can also encourage these trees to produce more fruit by pinching new shoots in spring.
