I think my figs died over winter
We live in the Niagara region in Southern Ontario, Canada.
We bough a house 2 years ago that has a bunch of fruit trees and grapes.
We have 2 fig trees that are up against our garage, they look to have been there about 10 years. Our back yard backs onto a park so it gets a lot of wind.
Winter 2012-2013 I wrapped the figs in burlap and then in a black cloth sheet. They survived great and we had a great harvest in fall 2013.
Winter 2013-2014 I did the same thing, but it was a bitterly cold winter. This spring the branches are all dry and snap off easily. Our grapes, apples, pears, rapsberries, strawberries, and blackberries, which were all just left exposed over the winter have all got leaves and/or blossoms on them already. The figs however seem dead.
So my biggest question is are they likely totally dead, or will they come back next year? anything i should do to help?
