                        Welcome Roger, my condolences on being related to Hershell even if by marriage.
                        Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

                            Welcome Roger. Did your wife convince you to join so you could keep an eye on Hershell?

                            Here's a link that some folks find useful.

                              I think my wife must be crazy seeing she's put up with me for the past 18 years

                              Now she keeps asking me "why do we have so many figs?"

                                Hello Roger,

                                Welcome to Our fig forum community.

                                You will have to disavow any knowledge of Hershell and his actions.
                                Good luck Roger.

                                  welcome from another Florida peep outside of Tampa. The only way you will get nice figs is from the people here. Nurserys around here no help. this is a funhouse complete with wild endangered animals

                                    Since you are near here in Florida, I am keeping my on my patio which has sun screen plants gets some morning sun and afternoon. Should I put in full sun or is it too hot? And with this rain also afraid of getting too much water. I have transplanted to 3 gal containers.

                                    Welcome. Hope you have deep pockets. Once you get hooked and drawn into the fig world you start bleeding cash.

                                        Welcome Roger.
                                        Don't believe all this talk poor mouthing Hershell. I met him for the first time in Baton Rouge. He offered to send me a tree. Wouldn't let me pay him a cent. If that's not enough proof, he has the cutest avatar ever!
