Over wintering Fig Trees in Zone 6

In this video I show you what I used to protect the Fig Trees over winter. Fig trees are typically grown in warmer climates, but the variety Chicago Hardy Fig allows me to grow them in USDA Zone 6.

The following pictures are the Fig Trees I have mulched 4 feet high supported with wire cages and tobacco sticks. Something I do not mention in the video above, is that I will also be putting tarp over top of the cages to protect both Fig trees from snow and colder temperatures.
