  • Perfect Fig Companion Plant

    We have been searching for a good companion plant for figs and finally found it, the wonderful Dandelion. It flowers early before the fig leaves shade it out so good for the bees. It has a nice long tap root that will reach down where the fig roots are, so if it wilts the pot is truly dry, so its a good indicator of the water level in the pot and will wilt before the fig wilts. Other flowers and herbs were shallow rooted and would wilt before the pot was really dry. And the seeds are free
