Books by Lee Reich:

Growing Figs in Cold Climates

(2021, New Society Publishers)

Growing Figs in Cold Climates is a complete, full-color, illustrated guide to organic methods for growing delicious figs in cold climates. Here are five methods, some pruning techniques, and suitable varieties for making this possible across cool and cold growing zones of North America, Europe, and beyond. Also some ideas for small-scale, commercial fig production in cold climates.

A fresh fig is a soft and juicy fruit, with a honey-sweet, rich flavor. And very perishable, so is picked underripe commercially, which is why fresh figs from the market never develop full flavor. If you already grow figs, this book will help you grow better or more figs, or be able to manage them more easily. If you haven’t yet experienced the rewards of growing figs, you have a treat in store for you. Easy and delicious!

    I am interested in purchasing the books Growing Figs In Cold Climates and The Pruning Book and was wondering about shipping to Canada (Southern Alberta). Secondly I was wondering, since I am fairly new to gardening, if you have any recommendations on a good book on plant diseases as well as any other useful books. Lastly have any of your opinions changed since writing Weedless Garden or have they largely stayed the same?

    Thank you in advance for your time.

      In answer to your first question, it is prohibitively expensive for me to ship to Canada.
      Book recommendations: For pest problems, “Rodale’s Ultimate Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening: The Indispensable Green Resource for Every Gardener”
      Changes in Weedless Gardening: Over the years, I’ve continued the basics, with a few tweaks. For instance, I now do tarping and I will occasionally use an organic herbicide for large areas. I haven’t re-read my vegetable section but I’m sure I grow some of those a bit differently than 20 years ago. But basically, the basic principles and practices are sound, and work well.
