Hello.

I have two inground celeste and one potted Kadota that I overwintered in a garage for the first time.  It's already putting out leaves, albeit yellow in color, and brebras are swelling.

I had the tree inground but it never responded well to winter protection and the growing season is not long enough to produce figs so I potted it and overwintered it indoors.

What should I do being that it's too cold to put it outdoors?  Should I pick off the brebra?  Should I move it into a warmer location inside?  Does it need more light?  Thanks for your help!

I brought mine into the lights and the warmth and now I have gum ball sized brebas. If you've got the inclination to baby it, that is what I would suggest

I already feel bad. The cleaning lady knocked off 4 breba. She probably didn't think anything of it. Nevertheless I was saddened to see them on the floor.
