When should I plant a new fig tree?
Hi, last year hurricane Sandy uprooted and killed the Italian fig tree (Red Honey Fig) I had for many years. I finally found a replacement at a garden center. It is small at the moment, about 20 inches tall and potted in a small disposable pot. My question is: When should I plant it outside? Should I keep it indoors in a bigger planter for the winter season to grow a bit before moving it outdoors? Or should i plant it now as It doesn't get cold now until end October - mid November. Also, is there any food or fertilizer I can/should use during transplant that will help it along?
Thanks in advance,
