Need help with fig tree
I have always had fig tree in my yard. In NY I used to cover them in the winter, One in particular had big green figs, very sweet. When I moved to Florida, I figured it should do good here, being warm all year round.
I took a little one with me and plant it in my new yard. North tampa (zone 9). I was happy when I saw new leaves and even figs growing, but they only last a few weeks, then the leaves and new shoots die out. After a year I relocated the tree,, a few branch are still alive but the same thing happens twice a year when they are suppose to grow and fruit. The tree is still alive but no new growth last more than a month. Any advise and help is appreciated.
