(First… happy 1st birthday Aaron!)
Now.. back to gardening.
Last year I purchased a “Hardy Fig” and it sat on my deck all summer and in my house all winter. This year it seems to be really growing well other than a little nip of frost on the one branch.
This year, when purchasing some other plants, I saw the hardy fig again and read the description which said that it could be left outside for the winter if planted on the south side of the house. The description said that it would die back over winter but would return in the spring. I was curious.
So… I now have to fig trees: one will be stored in the house over winter (pix 1) and one will left outside to fend for itself. (Pix 2)
I have heard that some people bury their fig trees for the winter. Sounds like work. :D Sorry tree.
