After we lost a massive sapodilla tree in the non-hurricane in August (I get the prize for having the only damage in Dade County, yay me!) we went down to Pine Island Nursery to repopulate our postage stamp with producing trees. Then it rained like crazy throughout the fall (finally some weather luck for my yard!) The ice cream banana seems happy, as do the sapodilla and the macadamia nut trees. But the fig bush has lost all of its leaves.
It has buds and seems to be alive.
I know my parents' figs go dormant in the Virginia winter, but is anyone growing them down in Miami? Are they supposed to go dormant? I'm hesitant to water it, since we still are getting some rain, and because I don't want to encourage spring growth now if it should be dormant.
Any ideas? We're growing brown turkey. (And yes, I planted it far from any water line.)
