Figs can be grown in pots, at least 600mm wide and deep, to allow the roots to spread.
Figs can be propagated very easily. In late autumn take hardwood cuttings, between 20-30cm long with several nodes. Plant the cutting in a free draining propagation mix like Yates Seed Raising Mix, make sure you cover a couple of the nodes. Water in well and keep the soil moist.
