Transplanting Fig

Posted by jewjewbean410 none (My Page) on

I have a fig tree that I bought a year ago. It was a 3 gallon size plant and we planted it in the back yard. Now my dog keeps eating it. Somehow it has managed to survive, but it's definitely not looking pretty. It has no leaves because he eats them everytime they started growing and he eats any new growth. We'd like to try and transplant it to the front yard because it's trying so hard to live. Would doing that more than likely kill it or could it survive even though it's been through so much? By the way, I live in zone 7. If anyone has any advice on when and how to transplant it to give it the best odds of surviving, that'd be awesome.

I'd move it as just as soon as there is no reasonable chance of frost in your area. As for whether it can survive the move or not? If you leave it where it is it's a goner for sure, right? So what have you got to lose?

RE: Transplanting Fig


I'd move it to the front year after frost is no longer a risk and put a strong fence around this little fig tree (for now and after the move) so the dog cannot get close to it and chew anything it sees in sight!
