Grow Figs Where You Think You Can’t

The Fig Book for Cold Climates

Winner, 2012 Silver Award of Achievement, Garden Writers Association

Even if You’re in a Coldish Climate!

In this fun, plain-language book, a Fig Pig (me) who lives in a cold climate, shares his passion for figs so that others in fig-unfriendly places can see that growing this fabulous fruit isn’t rocket science.

Tips, techniques, and anecdotes—along with the insights of fig experts in North America and the UK—make fig growing easy for people who live in places where they think they can’t grow figs.

DID YOU KNOW that a fig tree overwintering indoors needs no more care than a potted houseplant? Actually, it needs less, because the fig goes dormant in the winter. Night-night!
