When to Winterize Fig Tree
Hello, I have a Celeste Fig Tree that I planted this past spring. When should I winterize it (wrap it in burlap, stuff leaves around it). The leaves have not dropped yet. Should I wait until the leaves all fall off or should I wait until nights are consistently below 30? Sometimes throughout winter, we will have "strange" 70+ degree days - is it ok to just leave the protection on in those situations?

Wait until the foliage drops before you winterize your fig. You can wait until the temperatures get colder sometime before Christmas.
