Though I’m a bit of a beginner to growing figs, they hold a lot of intrigue and romance. They are not really supposed to grow well in a good portion of the US but I live in a transition zone where you can keep them alive with a little work.
The trees are really beautiful with unique leaves and great tasting fruit.
But I admit, part of the draw is the history of this great tree which goes back thousands of years and involves many major religions.
So tune in today:
*As I dissect the long and storied history of the fig tree.
*Find out how the fig tree figures in many prominent religions.
*To hear about how to keep the fig tree alive in certain climates. This is best article about burying the fig overwinter that I’ve read.
*To find out how to propagate new figs-pretty easy but neat!
