      Nice Salvatore!! That’s impressive. Most likely rain has caused your splitting. Are you getting these figs with using dr bugbees method?

          That's a beauty. I like a lot of the big, yellow ones. I'm looking forward to a Golden Riverside and Dr Gowaty that are still young yet, but growing well.

                  What size pots are those trees in? How do you keep them from flipping over in the rain and wind? That's such a problem. How do you deal with that issue?

                    Thanks for the link... interesting article! I really struggle with this whole wind thing. Love the squatty pots too. It's really hard to tell sizes in the pics. How will you attach the pots/trees to the guide wire part? What keeps them attached?

                    Similar wind issues here (I grow on my roof) - things that work for me:

                    - Larger pots
                    - SIPs (extra water weight)
                    - Pruning for a lower trunk, shorter scaffolds
                    - Grouping pots in groups of 3 so they support each other
                    - Wrapping trunks together

                    Honestly though when a particular tree starts blowing over a lot that’s usually a signal that I want to give it a bigger pot.

                    I also do the huddling/grouping them together thing. It helps.

                  Looks great, I have some figs on my Yellow long neck and Robert’s Golden Rainbow, they look to be the same fig. I can not wait to taste them.
