When to "winterize" my baby fig tree?

coll | Oct 18, 2010 07:20 AM

My little twig that I wrote about this spring now has 8 giant leaves and is doing well. Still in a pot out on the porch. A friend told me to wrap it in bubblewrap and leave it out for the winter, rather than in the basement/garage uncovered. Don't want to mess up now! Is it unwise to leave it out even though covered when it's potted, do you think? She also just gave me a tiny little beach plum plant for my yard, also in a beginning size pot. Should I stick it in the ground now, or let it sit until spring? My thumb isn't all that green yet, although I'm working on it.
