Thanks for all the ideas! There are no nursuries that I know of closer than 4-5 hour drive, which is too far for me to go 'just' to fetch figs. I will keep trying to find someone in BC who does ship, and will also read more from adrianos pages. I did look at his varieties, and the selection is overwhelming .Does anyone have a couple reccommendations? ( maybe 2 hardy frost resisitants for outside, and 2 I could drag in and out) My kids devour any variety, but Id like something prolific, that will also be preservable( drying ) and then something thats just plain fabulous to eat fresh.Any ideas/comments?
