Want to grow container fig in massachusetts
Hi all, I would like to grow 1 or 2 contained fig trees. I know nothing about them except I really like the fruit. I've heard stories from friends where there outdoor planted fig trees did poorly after a tough winter. I live in northeastern Massachusetts near the New Hampshire border, Zone 5. I would like to plant them in ornate pots so I can bring them in in the winter.
Is there any problem with this? What can I expect? Will the plants look good, with leaves, during the winter in a warm house? If this is not an option will they be OK in a warm basement, approximately 65 deg F if kept wrapped up? What should I do? Thanking you in advance, Gary
