As in my earlier post I find reading the old books on professional growing interesting. many books from the early years have expired copyrights and now can be found  as ebooks on google and amazon in pdf and tablet formats.

I have the entire book, but maybe too large to post here. The title is:  Fig Culture, Edible Figs,  Their Culture and Curing

Here is the entire book, enjoy.  Look not only at the propagation material, but also the type descriptions in the front.
