Big problem for figs in sandy soil is root nematodes. I have seen nematodes
in other than sandy soil. In fact, I get best results here in clay if I
plant figs next to building foundations to allow the roots to go under the
foundation and escape the shallow-soil-dwelling nematodes. Leaving the
upper part of a plastic pot in which young figs have been started is said to
force the roots down deeper into the soil.
It may work, but I haven't proved it to myself yet.
I think I will try the sugar. Thanks Bruce. I got the spell checker. I
appreciate your suggestion.
