Fig Tree

Anonymous added on March 20, 2014 | Answered

My neighbor gave me a fig tree which she had dug up. I planted it almost immediately but within an hour the leaves had drooped and it died. I have left it in the ground hoping it might revive, but it looks dead. Will it come back or should I dig it up?
