The Fascination of Figs

I had a great turnout for my talk about growing figs in Stratford, Ontario this past weekend. What surprised me was the number of people in the audience who have fig trees!  

A lot of the questions I answered afterwards had to do with how to overwinter fig trees. Luckily, there are so many different ways to do it. As I pointed out in the talk, the great thing about fig trees is that they go dormant in the winter--and that makes them very easy to keep...no fuss needed while they sleep.

My book about growing figs will be out soon...stay tuned!
