new plants supposed to be dormant?
Hello! I am new to the forum. I grew up in Florida and always had figs from my Grandmother's farm. Since the farm has been sold and we are now living in Kansas, I am feeling the withdrawal coming on!
I ordered 3 fig trees, a brown turkey (like we had at home!), a Chicago Hardy and a Magnolia fig. They arrived in 4 inch pots and were supposed to be dormant. Two of them have a leaf forming at the end of their branch. They are all about 7 to 12 inches tall. I had planned on keeping them in large containers (25 gal. muck buckets).
It is still in the 30's-40's during the day and 20's at night. I am confused about the dormancy issue and don't know what to do with them now that I see leaves. Is it to early to plant them and keep them indoors as they grow and them put them outside as it gets warmer?
