    Nice idea to have all the important, cultural information in one section. Especially useful for the newer growers to reference. Just saying.

    That list is a great start!
    I think a topic along the lines of "pests" may also be helpful. Whatever the title, it could include anything from fungus, rust, fungus gnats, ambrosia beetles to voles/gophers/rabbits/deer...

      Agree, but It should be limited to fig specific pests and diseases.

    Would anyone like to recommend forum topics for inclusion in the pinned Index?

      there is an old book online with the university of Arizona "Practical Fig Culture in Arizona" found here http://arizona.openrepository.com/ar.../B077-1916.pdf
      might be a good addition to the publications section of the frequently referenced topics.

        Interesting reading! Wonder what some of those cultivars are - Black Adriatic? Or just a generic term for a black common fig? Looks like back then they used the term 'Adriatic' as a class term for common figs like 'Smyrna' is a class term for figs requiring pollination

      Pete thanks for this "Frequently Referenced Topics" index, it's a fantastic idea! Here are some others to consider adding: "Winterizing Container Figs", "Protective Structures & Ideas" with subcategories like "Greenhouses" "Hoop Houses", "Cold Frames" etc.

        Pete,EVERYTHING you have ever posted about rooting, growing, watering fertilizing figs.Your knowledge is invaluable. some is already there but a special PETE folder would be real handy!I think you are probably a humble person not given to welcome praise, but as a clear expert(as opposed to most of us) being able to quickly read your writings would facilitate our success. I am already doing better because of your kind assistance with essential info.

          I'm no expert, just been gardening for a few years and am glad I could help.

          The recommendations of threads and index categories is up to the forum community.

          Knew you'd say that! well my request appears in plain text posted above and I request the forum formally insert a PETE folder in stickys under appropriate title like;FIG GROWING ADVICE BY MEMBER PETE. About "expert" probably I misspoke.Having been allegedly"educated" in several scientific disciplines,the main thing I learned is there are really zero"experts' and what we know is minuscule compared with what we do not know at all.In fact we have no real concept of what we do not know .And the best of us simply have some awareness of what works at least adequately for our immediate survival.So,maybe the best of us get called'experts",but all 'experts"know better!As do you.Pete

          Thanks for commenting..

          There is a topic on partial burial of fig trees under 'Container Growing:'.
          And if a topic or thread doesn't exist you could start a new topic or add to the discussion in an existing topic / thread.

          Hi Pete there really is nothing about fertilizing partially buried container fig trees.

      • #17
        Pete I would also add a link to the Fabio method in spagnum moss as well as a link to BenB in Seattles video on the fig pop method. And if u could help will or whoever runs the forum with a better search feature to search for specific topics along with searching for user names I think that would be helpful and a watch list for bad sellers on ebay thanks

            Hi JLB I am glad you found the ourfigs ripening calculator spreadsheet useful.

            Just as a general note, you should not use the ripening dates as-is. Rather use the GDD hours in the spreadsheet as a reference to determine when something will ripen in your area.
            We covered this in detail in this thread. https://www.ourfigs.com/forum/figs-h...pen-in-my-area
