  • Hello new found friends

    You have a warm community here so I thought I go ahead and drop in and say hello.

    Those strong childhood memories they are the ones that evoke distant times. We would receive long, white, silky smooth boxes arriving by post. Figs, so colorful, yellow, green and purple. So delicious; drops of sweet nectar would not grace the lips of unlucky siblings who weren’t present.

    My sister up and married and our newfound family had the right of it. They grew their own trees despite the climate. They always said these are good Italian figs. That was thirteen years ago. Now I have a home of my own and here I am looking at three unknown summer fig cuttings from my sis and it has been quite a journey to get here. The warmth of spring and the earth awaits these little darlings.

    Thank you all for the advice and knowledge you have posted here I find it illuminating.

                  We’re a small drink northeast of Nashville. I’m a newbie to figging. If I can conjure subtlety my spouse won’t notice the orchard ring about to go around the back yard.

                      Thanks all. I’ve been collecting information on good plants for the local area and will be keeping my eyes out for cuttings. There’s a big project to put into place next Spring. Now I’m working on preparing the area.

                                    These babies have nestled in their terrariums for about two weeks and I am happy to report… we have roots.

                                    The three cup method seems to work well.

                                      Congrats. Now the tricky part will be acclimating them to life w/o a humidity dome…

                                      Right . Well if this doesn’t work my sis said I can come back in November and dig up 1-2 dormant trees.

                                      Didn’t work… of my three cuttings two dropped like flies going for borax. The third held on for a while then gave up the goods as well. I’ll have to chalk this one up under lessons learned and see what else I can come up with. I’m holding out for Fall and cutting season.
