You couldn’t hurt a fig if you wanted to…
These suckers are so tough. Here’s a picture of three figs that I thought were dead. No watering, no care, and a rabbit munched them down in their pots. Jump forward a few weeks and these suckers were taking off, so I tossed them in the ground.
8 degree winter temp. No watering apart from rain. Rabbit cut them down to the ground. A few figs the first year aren’t going to hurt a thing.
