Since this grew nicely, but the growth looks like it will harden off before Winter, I think it's OK to plant it in ground. This location is South of the house. Full sun. There is room for a row of about 6 fig trees. So far the row has a Sal's, Petite negri, and 2 other starts. I plan to move those starts out, and replace with a Smith, Atreano, and Champagne. Plan subject to change as seasons pass.
