Fig question

yawineyJanuary 30, 2013

I have a Petite Negri Fig coming from RT and realize It needs to go in a pot due to space. Can I leave it outside over winter? Zone 8. Sebastopol, CA

I would, unless you know the roots in your pot would freeze over on any given night.

I wish I could:-)

I agree. Pot it up in a fast draining medium. Keep the medium damp - not wet. Keep the plant outdoors whenever the temperature is 30* or above. You might wish to secure the plant against movement relative to the pot. Here's one way I do it:
