We should not plant young fig plants directly outdoors. Only after three years in the container with frost-free wintering are the trees stable enough to withstand stronger frosts. A sheltered, sunny location in the garden must also be chosen for frost-hardy varieties, which sufficiently protects the tree from cold northern winds. The soil should be rich in nutrients and well drained. It is advisable to provide winter protection, especially for younger trees. The root area can be protected with a thick layer of mulch made of leaves or straw.
