Also, are figs grown in Canada?
This means that you can grow fig trees pretty much anywhere in Canada! Unlike most fruit trees, figs grow and fruit beautifully in containers. Bring your container into a cool, dark frost-free spot for the winter.
Furthermore, when should I bring my fig tree outside? When the nighttime temperature stays consistently above 35 degrees F. (1 C.), you can place the fig tree back outside. Because the fig's leaves will start to grow indoors, placing it outdoors before frost has passed will result in the new leaves getting burned by the frost.
