That's what I was afraid of, given their small size. I do have them up against a short (~4') stone wall, so that may help keep them warm a bit longer.
But, it is encouraging, just at the time when I've got more fig plants. One of the guys I've exchanged scionwood with very generously sent me an instant fig collection- 10 varieties. I had mentioned my spotty record with rooting cuttings (3 successes in 20+ tries) and he offered to send me already rooted plants!
I've potted them up (cups to 1 gal, bread bags to 2-3 gal) and am planning to grow them inside for the winter. Though I am tempted to plant a couple of them outside, in hopes that they hit the ground running next spring. Would that be pushing my luck, given how late it is in the summer and their recent transport & transplant shock? The ones I planted last year did fine, but it was almost 2 months earlier that time. I did recently plant a Macool, which I received this spring and have been growing in a pot.
What I received:
Gris de St Jean
Nero 600m - cold hardy Bordeaux type
Takoma Violet - Mt Etna type found in Takoma park MD (yes with a k). Favorite of Herman in NJ
Adriatic JH - Hardy great tasting fig from Austin Tx, favorite of Herman
RDB = Ronde De Bordeaux - Hardy and early small dark fig
LDA = Longue D'Aout
Sumaki - Hardy fig from Syria, found by Bass
BryantDark - Hardy early dark fig from Brooklyn
