Is it possible to grow fig tree in the ground in Zone 5?
I have fig tree grow in a large pot. Over the weekend, I just causually talking to my mailman who delivered my package to the door. He said his dad grows fig tree in the ground in Chicago area, Zone5b for years. The fig tree bares fruits every year too. Before I further explore his dad's method of growing fig trees, I am wondering if anyone in this forum ever grew fig tree in ground in Zone 5 before?? If anyone do/did, how did you manage to make the tree survive in the cold , long winter temperature?
