I bought a little fig tree on eBay back in March and planted it without much hope by the house on our backyard.
To my surprise, it has been growing AWESOME. It is now about 3 feet tall with tons of leaves and even has a few little figs.
I started reading about its roots (yes, only now, very stupid of me, I know) and everywhere it says that figs are invasive and can damage house foundation and pools.
So I'm thinking about replanting in in a crate or a pot. What would you recommend? I do want it to grow BIG. Any recommendations about big crates? (Wooden, probably?) Most importantly, when should I replant it? I don't want to damage its roots much but I am afraid for it to grow even bigger.
