I am in zone 6, on the north eastern side of the United States, so there needs to be some light protection of the fig trees. You can look back on the video where I show you how I protected the fig trees last year here.
I have mentioned before that some people bury their fig trees before a fall frost, and dig them up in the spring. But I do not bury the fig trees here, and so in the video below, I show you my process for protecting/over wintering the Chicago hardy fig trees and the Brown turkey fig tree.

Thank you for sharing this video, it's really interesting!
My dad has a fig tree, but he grows it in a pot, and always keeps it indoors in winter.

I didn't know we can grow fig trees in the Eastern areas of the US, and haven't even eaten a fresh fig before. I saw them at the local market, and this time I will definitely would pick up some when they are available.
