Planting a Ficus Outside

Anonymous added on November 4, 2010 | Answered

I have 2 ficus that someone tossed out into the garbage.they are both approximately 5 foot tall and do not produce figs. I have had them in pot for 4+ years. Is there anyway I can transplant them to outside? I live in Northern Kentucky

    Most ficus that are grown as houseplants are not cold hardy outside in the winter. It would be best to keep them indoors for the winter. But, in the spring and summer, you can keep them outside in containers.
