I just received a potted fig tree and was wondering when the best time to plant it is? I’m in the Piedmont region of Georgia so we’re still having freezing temperatures right now. If I wait till after the last frost, how should I care for it in the meantime? I have it in my basement now. Do I water it?

Hello Katelyn, The fig tree is dormant so you can go ahead and put it in the ground the frost won’t hurt it. If you want to keep in the basement then it’s fine down there, since it’s dormant it won’t need a lot of water. Don’t let it dry out completely, just keep it as moist as a rung out sponge.
