repotting a fig
Greater London, England
I had a impulse buy yesterday (naughty me) and bought a little fig tree in Wilkos. I assumed it would be bare-rooted but it's in a small pot with the roots just starting to grow out of the end. I'm intending to keep it as a container tree, and read in the Fruit Expert that figs should be in a 15 inch pot. Obviously that would swamp it right now, so should I save on compost for the mo and just put it into an intermediate sized pot?
Also, should I keep it inside for the time being or put it out in the unheated greenhouse? I know they should be ok outside in London, but as it's been sitting at least for a short while in a warm bright shop and still has leaves on it, I'm unsure whether this is a good time for it to experience a sudden dip in temperature.
