  • Maltese Falcon Auction

    Here is a Maltese Falcon air layer I took last Fall. It is up for auction to anyone wanting it. Proceeds to be sent to OurFigs. I will pay shipping in mainland USA I live in Connecticut. Its nicely rooted in a 4inch pot and is relatively easy to ship or pick up if you are local

        Good question, didn't think of that... Saturday 12 march 4pm East Coast.
        The mother plant came from Tim Clymer at Threefold Farm Last year. I will package it carefully on Monday morning and will ship once I receive conformation of payment to Ourfigs by WillsC

            Connecticut..... ok. When you say mainland USA, it made it sound as though you lived outside the US.

            I got mine from Tim last year as well. Great tree!

              I moved to the States 15 years ago and I still get hung up on the mainland reference!

              I see, completely understandable. I'm used to hearing continental US or lower 48.... it's neither here nor there, just caught me off guard.

              What you want is the lower 48, continental or the 48 contiguous states. And then you have to consider the states with special rules.

              As I always say, the only safe place to ship plants and cuttings is KC, MO.

                    So Bryant is top with $40. Auction will conclude at 4pm east coast time today. If Bryant or the winner would like me to keep it a week to harden it off a little I am happy to do that. It came from grow lights 3 days ago.

                      If no one outbids me, then keeping it a week would be fantastic. I'll be out of town 3/16-3/21.

                                      Congrats on being the highest bidder, you're going to love this tree. I predict you'll soon want another one. Everybody (including the birds) likes MF figs. They're that good.
