Storing up energy for overwintering
There was a post about figs needing to store up energy to overwinter alive.
I got a little fig tree that the man at the nursery (NOT Mr. Robin) said had lost all its leaves and was just now putting new leaves back on. They don't look too good, are pale and small. The posts said not to fertilize the fig trees late because the trees needed to concentrate on storing energy for dormancy.
This little tree is just a baby, so what are the chances it will be still alive in the spring?
Is there anything I can feed it that would help its energy rather than putting it into growing leaves? I shouldn't have gotten it, but I did and then saw those posts. It's guaranteed, but I still don't want to lose it if I can do anything about it.
