When Is Right Time To Transplant A Fig Tree

Q: Thank you for your previous response. I have a new question. When is the right time to transplant a fig tree? The tree is about 2 1/2 feet tall, has been in the same spot for almost 3 years but doesn't get enough sun. We will move it to a sunny location. Thank you.


My research tells me very early spring before the tree has leafed out is the best time. Do be sure to water it well and root prune it now, Take a sharp shovel and insert it in the ground is a circle just as you would if you were digging it to transplant. Keep that soil moist through out the winter months, but don't drown it. I'd mulch it with 4 inches of organic mulch. Best Nancy
