    I thought it would be a nice to have a running list of web sites that sell Fig Trees. Every time I think I have seen them all, someone posts another one. So lets get them all into one place, I will update this post until the edit button is gone then a moderator will have to do it. Please add any you know and like to the list, along with the unknowns and the places to avoid.

    These are in no particular order

    Scott, I'm away from home and on my iPhone but I have a bunch of saved links on my computer, I'll try to add them next week. Three that come to mind are Durio's Nursery in LA, Almost Eden, and Edible Landscaping in VA.

    I believe you have florida hills under the wrong heading. They have way too many negative reviews to be under a "Trusted" heading. I see that they have a lot of positive reviews also. I wouldn't trust them.

      I knew this would be an issue so added a 50/50 listing, some are happy others not. Personally I rarely pay attention to online reviews, they are almost only from unhappy people and usually they are unhappy do to their own mistake and want to blame someone else.

      Either way, I personally have not seen anything negative on the forums about Florida Hills, not saying that there is not any just that I don't recall any.

      For the record I DO NOT TRUST Florida Hill. Not only did he send out a bunch of plants that were not the variety he claimed he also pushed his own website on another forum and claimed up and down that he had no connection to them until it was proved he in fact was the owner of Florida Hill......

      Wills, I remember reading about that situation. There are too many good sources of plant material available for me to ever support anyone who stoops to those levels. There is nothing that i want that badly.
      I refuse to knowingly support or contribute to those of that nature.

    Getting everyone to agree on a list is at best "tough" How do you weight the responses? Is 90% good acceptable?, only to those 90%, the 10% would not agree. If we had a sticky where individual members could post good and bad experiences it would allow members to decide.

    Kind of funny that no one has mentioned the infamous TY TY in Georgia.

      I intentionally left TY TY out do to the fact that everyone seen a little disgusted by them. I also did not know where to place them as I can't recall anyone's reports of dealing them and personally have not.

    I think a bunch of folks have received figs from Petals from the Past which lead me to purchase their O'Rourke and Marseilles. Apparently their O'Rourke is actually an Improved Celeste.

    http://www.ourfigs.com/forum/figs-ho...-from-the-past

    https://petalsfromthepast.com

    The figs I have received are in good health and happily growing.

    They are reasonably priced as well. I wanted the ORourke/IC and found that shipping was $15. I added the Marseilles and shipping for both was $16 combined so for the two figs with shipping it came to just over $36. Good price to me.

    I hear good things about mail orders with Petals from the Past. Fortunately, I live 20 miles from them and can drive to get what I need. The 1 gallon plants for $9 have been excellent so far.

        Bay Flora in California and Whitman Farms in Oregon are excellent. Have heard good things about Burnt Ridge nursery in Washington though have not ordered from there. Pine Island nursery and Top Tropicals both in Florida more for tropicals but have a few figs. Pine Island especially is excellent for tropicals.

              Rabbit Ridge was good for me. Fred had great communication and loves to talk about fig growing. Plant showed up nice and healthy. 2 days later I went to a parade and left my tree in a transitional shade spot. Stayed out way too long and I scorched the heck out of it in full sun for a few hours. Luckily it eventually rebounded.

              I bought a Satsuma and a couple Muscadines from Rabbit Ridge and Fred was nice enough to show me practically the whole nursery even though I accidentally came during off hours! He told me that the Battaglia Green is the most requested fig he has in stock.

              Seeing we're also talking about good nurseries in general, there is Logee's in CT.

              http://www.logees.com

              They do have figs and I have their Desert King, Ischia, Petit Negra and Black Mission. They haven't fruited yet so I do not know if they are true to type but the plants are very healthy and vigorous.

              They have a lot of citrus and other interesting and hard to find plants.

                          For European members, there is also Montserrat Pons website, Sonmutnou.com, for cuttings only, in Autumn. Also, Puntoverde vivai in Lecce, Puglia, is a trusted seller of trees in Italy only.

                        I forgot all about trees of antiquity, and have great from the them on a couple pears and apples in the back yard.

                        the rest I will have to check out later today.

                          A f4f member, Maggie, aka italiangirl74 is a trusted seller. She previously sold trees but now only sells cuttings. They are healthy, well wrapped and marked. She has a limited supply so you need to put an order in early. Her prices are also very reasonable.

                                Fitzski,

                                I bought 6 fig trees from Petsls from the Past that should be here end of next week. $9.00 each and only $29.67 for shipping for 6 - 1 gallon pots. Pretty good deal.

                                Then I will be ordering a few from JF&E this fall once they start shipping again. The 3 I got for X-Mas this year are doing great.

                                  I'm very happy with my purchase from Petals from the Past. The O'Rourke/IC is extremely happy. The Marseilles is now starting to grow after it was dormant for a few weeks.

                                  If things go well with the two I bought this year, I'll probably buy two more next year.

                                  Good luck with your figs.

                                  Kevin

                                  I live 20 mins from PFP and bought 3 one gallon figs this spring and all are growing very nicely with figs. The Papa John is a beast! The annual fig orchard tour is coming up in July. If it is like the fruit tree tour in the spring, it will be very well attended, informative and professional.
