Hi Pete
The fig looks good; hope it's a keeper for you.
Is the green and the white Greek the same fig?
I have both and the leaves look the same.

I have a zuchino figtree for thee years, every year it is loaded with figs they get the size of cherries and one by one they all fall off, now it's making second batch and they will fall off too.
This fig will make the same trip.

Hi Frank.
I start my rooting in January, and by April I have some nice plants to put out, my winters are short and need all the time possible before first frost.
Plus I enjoy it its how I spent my winters when I'm not ice fishing.

I use the Belleclare pot culture care for figs.
It says to use 1/2 to 1" of Granular Limestone on top of soil 2 times a year, May and August , always remove old Granular Limestone.

Hi Tami
I'm not an expert, but this is what I do.
I use granular lime ( I think it's the same as what you have) and at the end of the season I scrape it off and replace it in the spring with new lime, that is just my method.

Glad your life is getting back on track, it will get easier! Some time things happen for the best,

Subject: Surviving the frost Replies: 5
Posted By: vito12831 Views: 408
 
Hello.
Well I used one of those tripod water sprinklers set just above the tops of my fig trees. I used this method for the past two nights as a heavy frost was predicted. I turned the water on at 11:00 pm and let it run until the next morning when I went out at 8 am. The fig trees had icicles on the tip of the leaves and no frost damage. I have about two hundred trees and the temps went down to 30-31 degrees. I did not lose any trees and had no damage at all, so the sprinkler method does work!

Hi Eli
The tarp got shredded over the winter.
I tried the sprinkler last night and this morning the fig trees had icicles on them, but they looked OK. We will see when the sun hits them.

Martin,I never heard of that but it sure does make sense.  I gave them all a good watering before I put them away. 

@George, your memory astounds me! :)

@Rcantor, Yes, all the wood is dead.  It was a single trunk and split right at the bottom.  Sorry, no photo right now.

@ Pete it was a big black fig.


Thanks to everyone for responding.

I just lost one of my prized fig tree Genovese AF. I started my fig shuffle today and saw the trunk was
split in half.  Anybody know what would cause that?

Hi Chivas
I don't know much about the area; we went to the Villages and loved the place;
I see there was oranges and lemon trees.
I don't know much more about the area.
