One thing that fascinates me is how varied everyone's experiences are.
mIEKAL said, "At some point freezing is gonna kill all figs. I've never had a potted fig survive below 20-23 degrees F. Even the Hardy Chicago."
Yet I never even begin thinking about wrapping my potted figs and moving them into the garage until lows are into the teens. And although I've never put a thermometer in there, I suspect it gets colder than that when temperatures outside drop below 0.
On the other hand, after I stated my pet theory on how a lack of light inhibits leaf out, mIEKAL pointed out how his break dormancy in a dark basement. Nothing is as simple as we sometimes think.
