Do Figs grow in Montgomery county?
I have tow fig trees that freeze to the ground every year. I don't know what type they are. I am going to plant some Chicago Hardy and Celest types. Do you think they have a chance without covering them ?
Montgomery County Maryland
Celeste, Brown Turkey, Hardy Chicago, Brunswick, Marseilles, and Osborne are some of the most winter hardy cultivars of figs which perform well in Maryland. Sustained temperatures below 10° to 15°F will kill above-ground wood. More extreme temperature changes are expected with climate change -- and we cannot predict the weather. Winter protection, therefore, is recommended. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/figs
