Hello, everybody,

The first year I had two plants in the garage,I wrapped them with insulation (pot and all) and lost both.  This will be my third year growing in pots.  Last year, after most of the leaves fell off, I put them in the garage (unwrapped) with a small heater set to keep the temp between 35 and 40 degrees.  I only gave them a little water approximately 3 times during the entire winter; all the plants did well and I lost none of the 50 plants that I had at that time.

I wanted to share some pictures of the first fig from my Italian 258.  A good friend was generous enough to send me a cutting two years ago (you know who you are!  Thank you for this wonderful fig).  It is very large, juicy, and sweet.

Hi, Gorgi,

I got a plant at the gathering at Bass's house this past spring; I believe it originally came from you.  It was marked "original Malta #25".  Can you tell me anything about the fig?  I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi, Cathy,

I have done many more cuttings than I have done air layering.   I have about a 75% success rate with cuttings.  I have only done two air layerings.  I like the air layerings because if it takes you have a little plant already started. 

Did you ever get the cuttings for Longue D'Aout? 

Raft, I would like to know all the fig members in my area because I will have some extra fig plants that I would be willing to share.  It would be difficult for me to ship them, as I have so many.  If you have the maple syrup, I have the plants! :)

We had our first taste of a fig this year from a Sal's Corleone plant that I got from Maggie (Mediterranean Flora) last year.  It was very large with an outstanding rich sweet flavor.  THANK YOU MAGGIE!

We also sampled a couple of VDB figs that should have stayed on the plant for a couple of more days, but I just couldn't wait!  Very sweet!

Hi, Bass,

I want to thank you for your hospitality.  We had a GREAT time and learned quite a bit.  I can't wait for the next gathering.  I really enjoyed meeting other Forum members.

Ed got his plants back; we had them mixed in with our plants.  When we returned home and noticed them, we called Ed and arranged to get them back.  They are now safe and sound back with Ed.
