That time i was afraid it would die, but it did recover, making new green buds. Figs trees seem to be kinda indestructible.
The fig is just not opening buds but not dying back any further
It is very special to me as it was handed down directly a link with the past going back some hundreds of years through numerous gardeners
I did pass on one of of these myself so I could go and get a cutting from then if needed
