Fig, rehomed


The fig has a new home. I did not want to let it overwinter in its current container, which it had outgrown, yet again. So I rootpruned it as I do every year, but this time transplanted it at last (after...seven years?) to a larger pot. It still had all its leaves, and ideally it should have been done once they'd dropped. I don't advise following my example. While this cold weather is perfect for the job, all its leaves mean it's still in active food production mode, so chances of shock are high.


Looks a bit stumpy.
