This results in a beautifully structured plant that can be used as a living fence or ornamental feature in a garden.

The leaves of Ficus carica 'Napolitana' are large and shiny, with a deep green color that makes them a great backdrop for the plant's fruit. The figs themselves are medium-sized, with a rich, sweet flavor that makes them a popular choice for fresh eating or baking.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
