I have people asking me about the soil mixture i'm using for my potting plants.It is very simple:i use soil from "deep in the woods",black one,very rich, mixed with 30%aged horse manure,and some rabbit,chicken pooh.Again,i am watering my plants with rain water or from the small creek behind my house.Now...I wanna show you a little "experiment"...this year in may, I started 2 cuttings,from the same varietie,in the same time,6" each one...one in a 5 gal pot with regular potting soil from Home Depot,and the other one in a 55 gal drum with my mixture.As you can see in todays pictures,the one in 5 gal pot is 20" high,compared to 47" high,the one in 55 gal drum with my mixture.Any comment will be appreciated.Thanks for watching.

Pete,i am using the cheapest mixture...black soil from the woods and 30% aged horse manure mixed with rabbit and chicken pooh from a farm near me.On 32 gal pot or bigger,i'm changing the soil every 2 years and i'm watering my plants from a small creek behind my house. Very simple!!

Frank,first of all,i kept few Kesariani cuttings for me and I lost all of them.But,i still remember the photos taken in Greece by the owner:a lot different that my Black Greek,similar to Celeste,but bigger in size.I remember his note"it is a super productive tree,all my neighbors got plenty of figs from my tree".
These are some of my Black Greek taken this morning.Enjoy !
