JJ’s gar­den so­lu­tions

Creep­ing fig

Home (South Africa) - - HELLO -

Eric Smith writes We have this climb­ing plant (right) grow­ing on our bound­ary wall; what is it? JJ replies This is a tickey creeper (Fi­cus pumila); as you can see, its fruit re­sem­bles a fig. It is an ag­gres­sive grower, so keep it away from house foun­da­tions as it may cause prob­lems.
