Talking With Canadian Fig Grower Steven Biggs about Fig Tree Winter Protection

In this fig interview, I am talking with Steven Biggs, an Ontario fig grower. We discuss the importance of fig tree winter protection and the creative ways to go about it. This talk lays out a lot of the important details that are often overlooked. We cover pretty much everything, so don't miss it if you're still struggling to figure something out. I did write up a longer form blog post on this topic as well not too long ago. Feel free to read that in addition to what Steven and I got to chatting about here:


Steven Biggs is a fig author and growing food educator. He's written two books! One called Grow Figs Where you Think you Can't & Growing Figs in Cold Climates: 150 of Your Questions Answered: https://www.foodgardenlife.com/the-shop


Steven also has a website where you can find a lot of his other information and also where you can find his podcast. I've joined Steven on a number of occasions to talk about figs there: https://www.foodgardenlife.com/

So now Ross, I have to be worried that my garage will stay too warm for all the fig trees I’ve stored there. It is still so warm in this attached garage with the warmer than usual Fall weather. I have shut the garage heater off. The basement stays at 50+, and trees started too soon In previous year.

This is another reason why I don't put them away until I see 15F in the forecast. What temp is your garage right now? You definitely can't do the basement.
