All of My potted figs are in the ground today
Hello Its been a while since I have posted. Today I planted all of my potted fig trees into the ground . I had one tree that has been in the gound for two seasons. The first year it wintered I did all I could to wrap it and protect it , but it died back to the roots. It recovered nicely last year and wintered much better. I have eight potted fig trees all about three years old. They did better last year, in terms of fig production and the general look. I think they have outgrown the pots they are in . So I put them in the ground. My question is WINTER PROTECTION It seems the older the trees get , the more winter hardy . I am in zone 6a all of the trees are in full sun . I am thinking of making screen enclosure and filling them with leaves and then a plastic or tarp cover . I need some input , I dont want them to die back .
