Fig Planting Requirements
Where should a fig tree be planted? I planted one in the backyard where it gets sun all the time. In four years it is still not growing, yet still living. Should it be moved? What else should I be doing for it?

If you do not have a good planting area at the moment, you can simply grow the tree in a container for now, where you can easily move it to a more suitable location for overwinter protection. Fig trees require a sunny location, so wherever you get the most sunlight, I would suggest placing it.
