Mushroom growers use low concentration H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) to prevent moulds. Anyone tried it with fig cuttings?

Some feedback on my green cuttings using the baggie method - they grew roots just as well as the 1yr old wood cuttings. I've potted them all up in perlite/vermiculite as per instructions on this site. All looking good so far.

I'm no expert on figs, but it looks identical to mine (fruit and leaves) and mine was purchased as a 'brown turkey'.

Good to read about someone in the UK growing figs. Which figs do you grow? I've only grown Brown Turkey, and from what I've read on this site, other figs taste a lot better, but I don't know which varieties are worth trying in the UK. We're in S.Wales, so a bit milder than Sheffield, but still get low temperatures (last winter we had many nights between -6C and -7C.

Funny enough I've just tried rooting some green cuttings.

I wanted to try the 'baggie' method of rooting cuttings (rolling cuttings in damp newspaper and sealing in a ziplock bag. The cuttings were taken a couple of weeks ago (mid summer). Because, in taking the hardwood cuttings, I ended up with some of this year's growth as well, I decided to cut up the greenwood and add this to the bag too. I have removed all leaves/fruit, and the bag was placed in the airing cupboard (around 30C temperature). The cuttings were NOT winterised in the fridge.

Today I have several cuttings that have small roots, including greenwood cuttings.
