    Mine are container grown, yes a 5 gallon bucket is dandy.. Mine will be hauled to cover so they don't die back to the ground..

    Will they overgrow the container and have to be replanted eventually?

    Lol... I have two thumbs, and neither one is green.

    Some people keep them in containers permanently. They will only get as large as you and their environment will let them. They do the same for dwarf fruit and other trees as well.

    eventually they will get root bound in containers. You can pull them out and prune the roots to prevent over crowding or go up one size on the container.

    I've got 4 different fig trees in the cattle molasses tubs in my greenhouse. I prune the tops to keep them inside. I put them in my homemade wicking tubs. Google wicking tubs. I grow a lot of stuff in them.

    Mac, your in Leon's neighborhood you should go visit with him.. There's a fellow here that made contact with me in regards to this type of topic.. He went and visited Leon and will soon have themselves a greenhouse.. 1st leon, then someone savy with figs.. I joined Leon a couple years back when he had 300-400 subs, he is pure intel..

    Both channels are of men that have been there and done that.. So they have good knowledge and many videos..

    I've been to Leon's years ago. IIRC we bought tomato plants there, and Sweetie may have bought some other stuff when I wasn't with her. It's been a long time.

    My going and doing much is rather limited because of my health and caring for Sweetie these days. Not to mention the car's rat-chewn wiring...
