Should I re-pot?
I am new to figs, and yesterday I bought an Osbourne's Prolific. It's approximarely 5 feet tall including the #5 container that it is planted in; looks nice and sturdy. I am planning to keep it in a container permanently, and I was going to move it into a somewhat larger container as well as change the potting media (was gonna pretty much bare-root it). However, when I went to do this, it looks like that the buds on the tree are starting to swell and break dormancy. Should I just leave it alone at this point?Or should I just move it to the new container intact instead--and then bare-root it next year?
I am concerned because it really seems like such a small container for a tall tree. I don't mind the container, and I know that figs apparently tolerate container confinement well, but I don't think the current soil is top-notch either (I'm always a little concerned about compaction issues).
