Fiddle leaf figs mmmm

Remember not to plant in your garden once they have out lived their inside life . They grow to a massive tree with an uncontrollable root system

Large plants in their 'forever pot' do well if placed on a custom made trolley with castors. I've done this with my large pots so I can move them outside and give them a shower down and freshen them up!

Can you have a fiddle leaf fig in a room with a fireplace over winter, or will it be too hot and dry?
