A fig hedge for a cold climate!
The potted fig plants are in a trench. With the addition of a layer of mulch, the ugly pots are out of sight.
Figs are beautiful plants, with large, lobed leaves and smooth, grey bark.
The fig hedge will be beautiful. (And delicious!)
In November, once the trees are dormant, I will lay them over and cover them with mulch to protect them from extreme winter temperatures. (Any that don't fit in the trench for the winter will go into my garage.)
