The only problem with Fig trees is the huge amount of nasty huge Hornets that they attract.
But, like most country folk, I have a simple answer. A big old jam jar with a pierced lid filled with beer, some of Lady Magnon's Strawberry jam, and an over-ripe fig; they can't resist.
The one above had only been put out for about two days when it was almost overflowing with dead and alive Hornets. I don't know where their nest is, but as soon as the sun shines (rarely recently) they're back.
I suppose there must be a negative side to wherever one lives; one of ours is certainly these bloody Hornets. Dangerous!
