When to Uncover Fig Tree in Spring

Anonymous added on March 31, 2011 | Answered

I'd like to know when to uncover a fig tree in spring in central New Jersey. I've also heard it may not be necessary to wrap and cover my fig tree here in winter. Is this true?

You can unwrap it once temps generally are above 40 degrees F. If you get a few frosts after that, it will not harm the plant.

Some figs can survive in your zone. It depends on the variety. I would still wrap it if I were you, as a precaution. The figs that can survive in your area will survive a normal winter, but cannot survive a severe winter without help. Since you cannot know ahead of time which winters will be severe, it is better to be safe rather than sorry.
