Jodi, you mean you did not write them down? One of the most frustrating thing for me is losing a tag or mixing up the tags. This means I end up with an unknown after having a variety that has a name. Now I use metal tags and despite doing this, I have a couple with a question mark.

Yes I have been labeling them all with the metal tags. At least with names they come to me with. I have a whole notebook full of Figs I'm becoming acquainted with now thx to the forum. Anxiously awaiting tasting the fruits. So many Figs...

I am sorry if this red text is too rude.  I am just feeling sorta panicity   I have had no success with the cuttings that I purchases.  I would love to find someone who can get at least one to me.  I sent money for cuttings of the Godfather tree but have not heard anything.   I had so wanted to get started this year. Thank you in advance

Hi Sissy,

I did a quick search and found a couple of long-time forum members who are still selling some cuttings (apologies to any other trusted sellers I missed, I was just doing a quick search).  I've bought cuttings from both of them, and have always been really pleased.  Here are links to their ebay pages:

drivewayfarmer: http://www.ebay.com/sch/drivewayfarmer/m.html?item=152089453886&hash=item23693ce53e%3Ag%3AFQgAAOSw3mpXNeXq&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

It's usually hard to find cuttings at this time of year, but you might get lucky if you start a thread about it.  There are lots of helpful members in the fig community, and I wouldn't be surprised if someone had some extra wood that they were willing to prune off of their trees to help you get started.

Great job on the latest videos, GreenFin. The fig trees seem to be growing well. Will definately need to be hardened off after shipment.

Just curious, how do you control mosquitoes or are they even a problem? How about gnats and fruit flies?

    moeslem,    James has absolutely no control over the customs nor postal systems in foreign countries that may thwart the delivery of shipped packages abroad.    And many of us here have experienced the result of jumping through all of the legal hoops to send our cuttings overseas, only to have the recipient declare that the cuttings arrived non-viable.   AND...  after shouldering the expense and cumbersome legal burden of sending replacements abroad, we received a counterfeit cultivar back from the recipient, rather than our original cuttings.   So any guarantee that might be offered, would simply invite these said abuses.

   How about THEM figs!   

    LOL!!!!

I start by planting them all very deep when they're first planted, so there will always be at least a foot of wood that survives below ground regardless of how severe the winter is; that way it'll always sprout back up in the spring even in the worst case scenario.

When early winter arrives, I mound up mulch (hay, compost) around the base of the tree.  The trees this winter were all killed down to that mound line, but the wood from the mound line down all survived.

Next year I may step things up and put small tunnels over them, I'm not sure.  I'm also planted about 150 more, so I may hire some help with whatever method I use!

My shadehouse finally just arrived, so that'll give me a chance to try my hand at hardening them off before shipment.  Now I just need to squeeze 'build 50' shadehouse kit' into my existing 100-item to do list...

The fish quickly gobble up any mosquito larvae they encounter, so the pools never cause any problems.  The bananas, however, catch water at the base of their leaves, and larvae can grow in there.  Amazingly, lizards seem to do a pretty good job of getting most of them (I've probably got a dozen little lizards living in the tunnels).  But a lot of mosquitos fly in from outside, so there's always some.  On the bright side, though, they seem disoriented and tend to just hang out on the plastic roof.

There are gnats and fruit flies, but they seem to prefer the banana litter (old leaves, flowers, male fruit, and especially any overripe or rotting fruit), so they don't hang out around the figs or seem to cause any problems that I can see.

Speaking of Wellspring Gardens, they're a good source for Kona Sugarloaf pineapple plants.  If you've never had a Sugarloaf pineapple, you're missing out!  They're red on the outside with white flesh, and there's no core so you can just cut the top off and eat it out like a sundae :)  I think they're superior to standard yellow pineapples in both flavor and texture, I can't recommend them enough.

Hopefully the July deliveries are still on track... looking forward to mine! I ordered some for next March as well and will put in another order for next March since he has added more varieties but figured I would wait for my July order to see how they arrive. It is a great opportunity to pick up some rare varieties so I have been excited... looking forward to an update!!!

Sorry for the delay in responding to comments/questions in this thread.  I used to get email notices whenever someone would post in this thread, but I don't seem to get them regularly anymore, not sure why.

The trees all continue to grow, and grow well.  A lot of the 1st generation mothers are around 5 feet tall, and there's a lot of lignifying going on now, which is good to see.  I recently started rooting 2nd generation cuttings (which is the generation that will get shipped out to everyone), and they're rooting/leafing out well.  It's too bad that Black Madeiras don't grow like Conadria--I got several hundred cuttings just from the Conadria trees earlier this week! 

We're now just a couple of weeks away from the July 1st estimated delivery date, and I can see that the trees won't be ready by then.  It's looking like the project is about a month or two behind schedule, so I'm thinking it may be late August before they're ready to ship out.  I'm very sorry for this delay.  I think that not getting grow lights cost me a month early in the project, and not buying/building more greenhouses soon enough this spring probably cost another month.  I had been trying to conserve as much money as possible so that if anything were to go wrong I could refund everyone, but as it turns out there weren't any major problems, and all I did was slow down the project unnecessarily. 

I posted a generic pic earlier of the new 50' shade house that I bought to help transition the plants out of my greenhouses, and now I'm also adding a big commercial-size tunnel with roll-up sides to help hold everyone's figs.  That'll give me 6 greenhouses (5 permanent and 1 seasonal), which should be enough to comfortably hold all the trees until they're shipped.

Yes, I'll email folks to give them a heads-up when their order is ready, and to make sure it's a good time to ship.  I don't want to send the orders if folks won't be able to receive them (some folks may be gone for vacations, work, moves, etc).

Thanks for all the nice comments, everybody.  My stomach was in knots about falling behind schedule.  

I'm disappointed about missing the July 1st estimate, but I'm also pleased with how much progress has been made, and how well the project is progressing overall.  The schedule has gotten a little behind, but the project is looking like it will definitely be a success :)

I personally rather get them around the month of September.
Yesterday, due to my light neglect , I almost lost majority of the plants in pots. I was very close to having a heart attach. Worked on them all day by re-hydrating them and watering them gently every few hours. Was a bad day. The heat way in LA was very harsh and sudden.
Thanks for the heads up James.

Mothers. 

In the 2nd pic you can see a tub of mothers on the left and another tub of mothers on the right that was pruned back a little over a week ago and is already starting to grow back.

Yes make mine September as well...our heat is not that bad...but even with precautions that I know James would take...it simply makes better sense.

Thanks veggie_girl, and thanks for the tasty idea, Dan :)

As for an update:  Today was a big day!  I hired a work crew to help with all the work that needs done, and today was their first day.  My toes, hamstrings, and biceps are all cramping as I sit here, but we got a lot done, so it was worth it :)  I'm also bringing in a construction crew to put up a large new steel-framed tunnel with roll-up sides, so hopefully they'll get that done soon while the work crew and I are busy working on the orchard (mulching/planting/irrigation/etc) and the figs (up-potting, rooting, air-layering, irrigating, etc).

My outdoor figs are absolutely thriving!  They ripened their first figs in early September last year, and they look to be a month or more ahead of that pace this year.  The most impressive thing about them is that they didn't start growing any earlier this spring than last, it's just that they've been growing so much faster than last year that they've made up time.  I think I'm going to have my first really nice outdoor harvest season this year, and should have tons of cuttings as well.  (Generally speaking, the outdoor in-ground orchard is primarily intended for producing cuttings and whatever ideally-ripened fruit harvest I can get, whereas the figs in the tunnels are dedicated to the propagation project, though I will pull from outdoors to help with the project whenever necessary.)  I'll post some pics later after I recuperate a bit.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to care for these small trees after they are delivered?I ordered these as gifts and the beneficiaries probably don't have experience with figs..or bare root trees.Will a good potting mix work?Maybe a Promix? Light and airy,and easy on the water?

These will also arrive pretty late in the season.Should they be potted up and then hardened off gradually,and then be put out for the remaining couple of months?Would they be better off just put under lights until next season,and then hardened off etc?These will be going to Southern Oregon,and also Humbolt county.If lights are the way to go,what would you recommend?Cool white floro tubes?

Thanks.
