Hardy Chicago Fig - Dappled Shade - PG County MD
My husband and I planted a hardy chicago fig on the south west side of our property 3 weeks ago (along with 3 other fruit trees in other parts of the property). The fig was from Edible Landscaping, hardy chicago fig in 3g bucket, arrived with one fig growing
I don't think it is getting enough full sun. It gets a few hours (3-4) in the morning/afternoon and dappled shade form nearby large trees (20-30') that opened up recently for the rest of the day. We are going to trim the limbs that encroach on our property from the large trees and see if it gets better for our fig, since that needs to be done anyways (neighbor's trees)
This is our first year on the property (bought it in december) so I'm not sure how the sun moves (and maybe the sun will get better later in the summer)
We were thinking we could we relocate the fig to another more sunny area (I think i've found one on the north west side which gets full sun most of the day).
Is it too late to move it now? (3 weeks since planting)
Should we wait until it goes dormant for the winter and move it?
Or will it produce fine in its currently location and I'm panicking for nothing?
This is my first time doing anything like this, so any advice would be appreciated (moved from DC where we rented rooms in a rowhome with no yard XDD)
