Plant now, or wait until Fall?
This is the 2nd year the fig cutting has been growing in a small pot. It put on new growth this year and has one fig! My intent is to put it in the ground here in SW WA.
Can I do it now, or do I wait until the fall? It has been in bright shade on my deck and I left it there all (mild) winter, and I think the best place I have for it is only going to have partial sun. No idea of the variety, something oldfashioned.
Thanks for your help. Great forum!
BTW, for anyone wondering if their cutting is going to grow...I brought a piece home in my suitcase from SC in Nov 2010, and "heeled it in" in a shallow basket of dirt. My cousin's husband whacked a chunk off the tree he had grown from his grandmother's tree. In spring of 2012 I decided it wasn't going to do anything, dug it out to check for any little roots, threw it back in when I got distracted from putting it in the compost, and a week later it had leaves! After a year and a half! Sweet!
