The Q&A Archives: Overwintering blackjack fig trees

Question: Just bought a Monrovia blackjack fig tree for my yard (I love figs). I have heard many stories on how to overwinter fig trees in MA. Any suggestions other than burying them?



Answer: Burying is the method of choice in your gardening region but you may also have good success by wrapping the trees with insulating material and then topping with plastic. The idea is to keep the branches and trunk from freezing solid over the winter months. Best wishes with your fig tree.
