  • Free Raffle for Extra Cuttings

    I'm in a festive mood and I have some extra cuttings that I would like to share with the OurFigs community. All these came from members of this forum who were overly generous with their cuttings sales.

    The varieties are as follows:

    Longue d'Aout
    Smith
    Battaglia Green
    Paradiso GS
    Sals GS
    Marseilles White

    I pretty sure I have at least two cuttings of all of these varieties. There may another cutting or two that are later to the list.

    Instead of just offering them on a first come first serve basis, I'm raffling them off for FREE. No charge to enter, no charge if you win.

    Rules are as follows:
    - limited to 10 participants
    - must say in this thread that you are interested by saying something like "please enter me". No PMs.
    - we'll use the Saturday night (3/19) Play4 numbers for the winners. http://www.flalottery.com/play4
    - the numbers will be assigned randomly after 4pm on Saturday
    - we'll go left to right with the numbers. If the number is 9234. Then the person who has #9 picks from the list first and then the person who has #2 picks next, etc.
    - each winner can choose up to 4 cuttings. For example, that could be 2 cuttings of LdA and Smith or 1 cutting of LdA, Smith, Battaglia Green and Paradiso GS.

    Continental US only. No international shipping.

    Happy St. Patricks Day everyone. Erin go Bragh!

      OK, I'm in. I told myself I'd focus on potting-up instead of rooting this Spring, but I've already broken that promise...

        Yes, the raffle did fill fast. I had hoped it would fill by Saturday but I guess when it's FREE more people are interested

        Always.

        I saw your post last night before anyone replied, I thought about but I'm pretty sure I have everything your offering so I thought it would be better to let the newer people whom are trying to grow their collections get in on the action.

      What a great offer. Best of luck to those who made the cut.

          The Marseilles White are cuttings from your tree. The others rooted so well I had extras. I hope you don't mind me passing them on.
