Fig came back from the dead
We have a fig planted in a tub which to all intents and purposes seemed to have been killed after spending last winter outdoors.
It didn't show any sign of growth but still was green under the bark. I left it and in September I noticed what appeared to be tiny figs developing on the ends of what I thought were dead branches. Now the figs have developed and leaf buds are forming.
It's all very strange - I wonder if the plant went into a summer sleep due to the lack of rain (I didn't water much either as I thought the plant was dead!)
Has anyone else come across this sort of thing. It will be spending this winter in a cold greenhouse.
I have photos on my blog here http://glallotments.blogspot.com/2011/09/dead-or-alive.html
if you are interested.
