  • Our newest fig home

    Thank you, Wills, for opening up a new place to go to to talk about figs. I have no doubt this will be a winner.
    Looking for many years of enjoyment here and I will do all I can to contribute.

    Good luck

    It sounds like Fox News, fair and balanced. Of coarse it depends on who you talk to and there views. I personally like for everyone to be treated fair. Thanks Wills

          Wills,
          Hello, Thanks for pioneering a new Community where hopefully we can share our love of Figs and their Culture.

          Rafed,
          Hello, Great to be able to continue our association in an hopefully friendlier and happier surrounding.

          Hershell,
          Hello, and nice to see you here.
          Hopefully in this community we will be able to have discourse, arguments and disagreements without altercations.

            Hello Pete, Art, Kelby and Hershell.

            Good to see you all here. I am confident this will workout. As long as we don't let the prisoners run the asylum we will be fine.
            This is a fig community and I have plenty of figs to talk about. I have info to share with everyone.

            As always, I will always be eager to help.

            And I agree what Wills said, doesn't matter if you hear the same question 50 times a day.
            My motto is, no question is a dumb question. The dumb one is the one that's never asked.

                I believe the threshold is they have to be under a mb? maybe 900?

                Thanks Kelby.

                Yes, the stated maximum size is 900 KB and 5 photos maximum per Post.

                How close is too close to plant trees in a 48' by 96' house. I would like to get as many protected as possible.

                  Are you planting in-ground or in pots?
                  There were some pictures of potted fig trees in houses at http://figs4funforum.websitetoolbox.com/post?id=7280662

                  I haven't used anything other than a small 12x20 hoop house to extend the season for potted figs, spaced 4 feet apart, but your density would be dictated by the planned size of the trees and whether they are planted in-ground or potted. If they are regularly pruned the spacing can be relatively close. Good Luck.

                  BTW, they were only 6 feet tall at that spacing...

                  I think I'm commenting in the right spot. Pete knows a lot more on the topic, but I'm imagining high density apples planted at 2'. This would require a single trunk and almost continuous pruning, for figs, though. I presume you're growing all different varieties, so one variety out growing it's neighbors is a major concern at such spacing too.

                  Me, I'd do 6' spacing. Not sure what height your house will be, but they should fit well. Like you said, lots of pruning in summer and winter.

                  got mine planted 6' on center. i assume this will cause some dwarfing.
                  i'd rather have 12 small trees than 6 big ones.

                Pete. They will be in ground and I realize some grow faster than others. I also plan to plant a few Capri figs in ground in each greenhouse and around barns to try to hold fruit year round in micro climates. I want the trees to be productive but don't mind heavy pruning in the fall.

                  A big thanks goes out to Wills for his gargantuan effort in rolling out the new forum. Unless you are in the business of programming, setting up a web site is a huge pain in the arse. Wills, get some rest.

                      Hello Frank (FMD),
                      I'm doing well, Hope you are also...
                      Glad to see another familiar "Face" ; )


                      Rafed,
                      I think that there may be a few bugs to work out at Our Fig Forum's main Home page....
                      Your pictures are still there. They can be seen and accessed if you go to "Your Profile" by clicking on your hyperlinked member name.

                      I've got no inside info, just playing with some of the member's optional controls.

                          I found that out after I posted. But for the life of me I cannot find it now. Going to take a while now

                              Thanks Pete, that's a lot on information at one time.
                              Kelby it looks like about 6' spacing is going to be the best, I'm just wondering if that is too close.

                                Sorry Hershell,
                                I move the post and info to your new Topic...

                                Actually 6' on center could work if the spacing between rows (aisles) are greater than 6'

                                          Wills,

                                          JD here (3 character mininum so I am now JLD). I appreciate that you allowed the big guy to twist your arm.

                                          Pete,
                                          Thanks for volunteering to be the first moderator even if that also took some arm twisting.

                                          This will be fun. Am I reading that correctly? A 5 photo maximum. Is that fixed or variable?

                                            Jimmie,

                                            On the 5 picture maximum per post I will change it, 5 is just the default setting, it is on the to do list. I did bump the photo size from 900k to 1 mb. That one you have to have a balance as it is paid by the GB.
