  • Articles section of the forum.

    At the top of the page you will see a tab for articles which has been on the page since the start but now we are going to start using it. What I would like is anyone that is interested in writing an article or has a suggestion for an article would contact me. Know in the past I had asked but we just were not ready for it, now we are. So even if you contacted me before please do so again.

    The help from the membership is vital......you are ourfigs.com

                  Steps for how and when to establish a stable wasp colony, with caprifig cultivar recommendations
