I have had a "Brown Turkey" fig tree for the last 2 years. I have it in a whiskey barrel and have hibernated it in my garage. It recently began to bloom with light green/yellowish leaves, so I figured it was time to get it outside. The problem is that after I brought it outside it appears to be dying. I've watered it every other day and put some miracle grow in it but nothing seems to be helping.
When I purchased the tree it was a sapling and the information about it said it would be hardy down to 10 degrees. My concern is that given the early spring temperature here in NJ fluctuates there may have been some near freezing nights. Is it possibly that I killed the tree and if so , can I save it?
