Not sure if you have enough space to grow figs? Here's an idea for you!
Last month I had the pleasure of meeting another Toronto fig enthusiast, Nelson. He toured me around his parents' yard, a small, city lot brimming with potted fig trees. It's a real oasis. (Nelson has more trees at his own place too: he and his father are co-addicts when it comes to collecting fig trees.)
Aside from an amazing assortment of varieties, something else that caught my eye was how they make use of every bit of space. They even have potted figs growing on the garage roof.
