This weekend I took the time to put my 3rd fig tree in the ground. Peter's Honey. So far I have the negronne and the desert king in ground as well. They have survived my winters here in Seattle, which makes them good candidates for growing in the ground.
I hate the soil they used in my yard it's full of rocks and oh so hard to dig into. I had to reconstitute it with compost, 10-10-10, bone meal, micorrhizae, and home made compost.
