Propogating Figs with Marta McDowell

Emily Dickinson’s mother grew figs?--and you can, too!  Gardener-in-residence Marta McDowell will lead participants in propagating figs from cuttings. Take home your fig, and grow inside for the winter to plant outside next summer. We will also have a demonstration of trenching a fig for winter protection.
