Transplanting a fig tree in CT in July?
A friend of mine bought a house in Glastonbury last year. The beautiful 5 foot tall fig tree is of no value to him and he let it go uncared for over the winter (along with several other fully matured fruit producing trees... tragic. I know!).
The fig miraculously survived the winter and he agreed to allow me to unearth it and take it home. Everything I've read states it's best to move a tree right before spring kicks in. I'd like to move it now.
Is it okay to transplant a fig tree in June-July or am I just asking for trouble?
I'd appreciate any advice from seasoned fig tree lovers.
