As it is dark, wet and chilly and even swans are leaving to the south already, the snow is not so far away. I have eight young figs planted into the ground and this year I try to overwinter them outdoors. I have to prepare my figs for wintering. I have watched several videos from Youtube how to prepare figs for wintering and decided to try several different methods. Will make my conclusion next spring, how successful they were. Here is the first method: Fig is in a large diameter plastic water pipe, and another, even larger water pipe is surrounding it. The gap between these pipes I filled with garden soil. Inner pipe is covered by a cap, and the soil will be on top of it also. Everything is then covered with 200 litre metal barrel. When the snow comes, then it will be piled up around the barrel.
