Planting A Fig Tree
I have a family heirloom fig tree that is the offspring from a tree my family brought from Sicily. It's 2 years old now and still in a pot. I want to plant it outside in Staten Island NY next Spring. Is that ok.i know how to wrap it in winter. Thx for your advice

Unless it is a Fig that is meant to survive the cold, it is best to assume that it will not survive that far out of its native region. Some cold hardy figs can have trouble in zones as low as this, as well.
It will be best to maintain it as a container plant to avoid the death of the tree.
