What is ‘overwintering’ and how do I do it?
That’s what I was frantically searching for after my first season with my new potted fig trees: winter is coming—now what do I do?
I had heard the term ‘overwintering’ but I wasn’t sure what I needed to do.
I couldn’t find straight-forward instructions so I devised my own method, and, as it turns out, my instincts were correct. My fig trees have now survived several years of outdoor growth and indoor winter storage.
I’ve provided complete how-to’s here with an easy checklist.
If you have any tips you’d like to share, I’d love to hear them!
