How to Grow Figs

Growing Your Own Figs - Richters Herbs lecture:

As Steven Biggs puts it, "Growing figs shouldn't seem exotic; it should be straight forward stuff!" Indeed, a growing coterie of gardeners across Canada and the United States are mastering the art of growing figs in our temperate climate. Yes, figs suffer from the cold but there are ways to counter the cold as Steven will show. The Toronto-based journalist can fairly be called Ontario's chief advocate for growing figs, as he has written and spoken extensively on the joys of fig culture. He even learned some Portuguese so a Portuguese-Canadian friend would share his secrets on growing figs. Steven is an award winning journalist and garden writer specializing in gardening, farming, and food production. He is co-author of "No Guff Vegetable Gardening", and is a contributing editor for "Country Guide". His latest book is "Grow Figs Where You Think You Can't". Steven has a Bachelor of Science in agriculture with a major in horticultural science. This is a recording of a presentation given at Richters Herbs on April 21, 2013.
