Hello fellow fig growers. Hope every one is having a good day!!
Im new to growing figs.  Recently my wife bought me a fig tree From a local nursery. Its a English Brown Turkey. and I need tips on how to grow it. Im going to keep it in a Pot to take it in when it gets cold here in Rhode Island and i have perilite, Sphagnum Peat Moss, Manure, and Potting soil (left over from wife's flowers.).  what would be a good ratio. the pot i have is 9 gallons.

The second tip would be how to make it into a tree or keep that shape.

There is more LOL. I have saved a Fig tree I think. My Neighboor bought a fig tree about 4 years ago( she forgot wha type of fig it was). This year she forgot to winterize it and she thought it was dead. so she asked if I could dig it out for her. After i did she told me to throw it out. and i asked to keep it. well i have put it into my yard and added some Miracle-Gro Plant Food  and now it looks like it will survive. anything special i have to do.This one will be a shrub thanx and sorry for so much questions here are pics of the 2 figs
