    Bump! Bill's first event of the 2015 season will be tomorrow night, April 16, 2015.
    (...thanks for the reminder, Gorgi!)
    Many people know of Bill from his presentation on "Caring for Fig Trees" on figs4fun.

          I didn't buy anything this time, really.
          We went to see how Bill brings his plants out of storage.

          Main info we got was:
          1) Bring potted trees out of storage early April
          2) fertilize once in spring with osmocote (use 14-14-14 for fruiting trees),
          3) mix lime into potting mix,
          4) root pruning is necessary for long term health of tree (Bill took out his pruning shearers and hacked one of his trees)
          5) how the SIP pot works and how to use it
