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.
