A fickle fig or should that be fiddle fig?


As you probably realise by now I have been away on holiday for six weeks.  During that time we put most of our indoor plants outside but we didn’t want to put our fiddle fig outside as we felt it would not survive.  We gave it a good water before we left and hoped for the best.

When we returned, the fig was looking much worse for the wear.  Its leaves were very droopy and just waiting to be knocked off.  This is how the fig now looks.

It is a bit sad but hopefully with some tender, loving care it will soon be looking beautiful.

    I did notice your absence and am glad to see you back. It’s always a problem, what to do with plants when you go away. I’m about to go away and am not sure how my tiny seedlings will survive because I’ve been watering them every day. As you did, I’ll water them well before I leave and then keep my fingers crossed. I hope your fig perks up a bit, it looks to me as if there’s plenty of life left in it.

      Seedling may be a little easier to manage if you put them in a tray with water. I realise I have made the assumption that the seedlings are in pots where in fact they most likely are in your garden beds so that solution wouldn’t work.

        You’re quite right, they are in pots and seed trays, so I will just give them a good dousing before I go.
