I live in northern virginia. I bought a turkey brown fig tree last fall, I wrapped it in the winter. Now it is late april, there is no visible bud on it. I am not sure if it died. Anyone can help?
If you make a little scratch on the wood, and if it is still alive, you should see a little bit of green underneath.
So do not give up yet! Christy
I live in zone 6 in RI. I am only now just starting to see the tiniest buds on my in-ground fig tree. I uncovered it on April 1. There was a little bit of freeze damage on some of the tips, but there are multiple buds near the tips and on other areas of the branches that are just starting to show themselves.
So do they here in Zone 6b.
This year they wake up earlier than the usually May first.
Northern Virginia is not in Zone 6- you are in zone 7a or 7b. It will bloom and will not die in a Virginia winter. You are fine. Give it more time. Mine has huge leaves already and I am in coastal Maryland.
