  1. Do you keep heat in greenhouse all winter? If yes, why do they not wake up earlier? I just got into figd, half a year ago and will be my 1st winter with them. I was thinking of putting in colder room in closet where it wont get light and is not warm. Would that work or should i do something differently. Im also going to be getting a greenhouse for them. Should i be keeping them warm all winter? Thank you very much

  2. Ross, any reason not to wake up the figs early and do the shuffle? I have a few small trees so bringing them in every night is not a problem. Obvious question I guess but waking them up early is a good thing as long as I keep them out of cold temps, correct? Mine have already leafed out.
