  • Transplanting in-ground trees for low cordon

    Because this RLBV has naturally grown two main branches, I would like to transplant it to another part of the garden to train against a fence as a low cordon.

    When is the best time to do this? Would it be better to transfer to a pot and over-winter in the attached garage before transplanting in the spring?

    In general, are there any special considerations when transplanting in-ground trees back to pots?

    Thank you!

    I have several low cordon fig plants went from pot to ground in the Spring of 2019 and 2020 after the plants just shows signs of life. Have 100% success rate on 7 in ground now, all 7 are cold Hardy varieties, Chicago Hardy, Bensonhurst Purple, 2 Floreas, LaRadek EBT, Valle Negra, RdB. Spring 2022 will add MBVS, Atreano and Smith. Protect the the fig plants very well whether you pot them or winterize them and replant in the Spring.
