After an extensive ongoing battle over the summer, I've succumbed to letting my interior garden go. Trying to recreate a perfect balance of nature, though doable, is more than I can do at this moment in my life. Though frustrated, I'm realistic and may just pursue this at another time.

The question I have is this... I have a fig tree and a grapevine that have weathered well. Can I transplant them outside at this late time of the season\year without losing them?

Thanks,
Woody

I would wait until the plants are dormant, not now while they can still have new growth before a freeze, as this will damage the plants.

Ok, then my question would be, being that they are inside in a controlled environment and not affected by natural seasons, will they go into this "dormant" stage?

Yes, they will both go dormant but the grapevine might take a little longer. I would place both outside now and transplant later. Just remember that if your ground freezes transplanting must be done well in advance.
