Garden Snapshots: Valerie Nava’s Fig tree December 17, 2013 • 1 CommentValerie Nava proudly shows off the fig tree she propagated from a cutting and is growing in northern Oakland County, Michigan. She covers it up in the winter and it comes back year after year. According to daughter Catherine, her mom’s motto is, “I never give up.” As a result, Valerie and her green thumb can tell you about many plants and how to grow them. Do you have a snapshot of a plant you have overwintered? Post it to our Facebook page.
