My Ficus carica ‘Hardy Chicago’ survived the winter!
The buds have started swelling on my Chicago Hardy fig. I know we didn’t really have a “real” winter this year but still. I live in Chicago AND I’ll possibly be eating fresh home grown figs (or maybe just ONE fig if I’m lucky). I’m ridiculously excited about this, I’m pretty sure Michael will punch me if I mention it again so now you guys are stuck with my glee. EEEEEEEEEEE FIGS! The buds survived about a foot up the stem so I won’t even be dealing with waiting for the whole plant to re-sprout from the roots!
