Want to start a fig tree from a shoot I dug up
I dug up a shoot under my aunt's 30 year old fig tree to try to start my own. It is a pretty large branch and had 2 figs on it and a nice root system. Since its July, is it best to put the shoot in a flower pot and wait until spring to plant it or go ahead and plant it now? If now, how should I care for it during the winter? I read that fig trees like clay soil...which is great b/c we have a lot in North Texas. When I plant should I just put it right into the clay or dig out and put better soil and compost?
