Subject: Removed three Ronde de Bordeaux Air Layers Replies: 1
Posted By: tmc2009 Views: 206
 
Another not suitable for most advertisers video brought to you by New England Gardening.  This time I thought I would use a generic title for the video since I thought maybe there was something about the fig names that was getting flagged.  This is four out of the last five videos that have been flagged.  The last one took three days before it was reviewed and ads restored.  That is after the video gets the initial burst of views so essentially they are limiting your adsense revenue in an underhanded way.  All this effort on youtubes side for a gardening video?

No kidding, Another video not suitable for most advertisers with limited or no ads.  That's almost three in a row.  Youtube's algorithm hates figs?  A Black Madeira Day is a good day.

Missed it by this much.  Almost, but the cold and wet September pretty much put an end to figs being able to ripen and the trees are starting to go dormant.

Here is a video on the progress so far on two Hative d'Argenteuil cuttings I started in August.  Once again as soon as I posted this video it was flagged for not suitable for all advertisers and I had to request a review before it will be monetized.  I guess figs are now considered public enemy number one.

This tree was started from a cutting and the mother tree has since died.  It was originally purchased from WillisOrchards several years ago and the trees I received where not the correct varieties.  I finally up potted this cutting and it produced figs this year.

It just wasn't a priority.  I had started a lot of cuttings this year and the air layer wasn't going anywhere.

I noticed some roots on green wood on a fig tree I started this year from a cutting so I decided to try some air layers on my Ronde de Bordeaux that put up some green branches from the soil line after suffering some die back last winter in the shed.

I noticed that someone selling a Black Madeira on Ebay is also selling a rare carnivorous plant that is currently at $240 with an hour left on the auction.  If I can only figure out a way to graft several in demand fig varieties with this carnivorous plant I will be rich.

Repotted a Black Madeira I started from a cutting last year.  It has four figs that have made good progress for July so hopefully there is time for them to ripen.

For any fig variety it really is going to depend on the weather you have for that season.  Plus you can take into account if you live in an area that has it's own micro climate or you do what you can to create one that will give your fig tree the most sun and heat for the season.  That said I would say it is right in between an early ripening fig tree variety and a late season variety like Black Madeira.

I guess this is one of those varieties that really transforms its leaves as the tree matures.  They looked nothing like this when I received it and I could not find an example of the mature leave online.  It doesn't look like it will be producing any figs this year.

I purchased this tree in March of last year as a Galicia Negra off of ebay.  Does anyone recognize this variety.  The leaf pattern is pretty distinct but it does not look like the leaf patterns I find online for this variety.

Very strange!


One of the first cuttings I started years ago of Ischia Black grew six feet in the first year and then stopped growing.  I have a picture of me standing next to it somewhere on my computer.

This is an Ischia Black from UCDavis that I started from a cutting in 2013.  I has a small section of leaves that show no signs of the fig mosaic virus but then the rest of the tree show heavy signs of the virus.

I just received my order of mosquito netting from amazon and will try that over the pvc frame I already have built.  The bird netting catches birds and the chipmunks get tangles in it too.  I once had a chipmunk get stuck in the netting and twisted around the base of the blueberry bush.  It then frantically chewed all around the blueberry bush trunk completely girdling the trees bark off.  I let it go and the next day it was tangled again and there was no reprieve that time.

All the older fig trees were moved outside last week.  The smaller ones I'm keeping in the greenhouse to keep them away from a large rabbit that's in the backyard.  I moved my citrus outside today.  There are now freezing temps forecast and tomorrow will hit 80F.

One of the Air Layers I removed did not turn out so great.  The Hardy Chicago air layer twisted the roots off after I cut it off.  The weight of the figs and the bend in the branch twisted it around breaking just about all the roots that had formed.  Not to smart.  At least it was not a Black Maderia.

I removed an air layer from this Jolly Tiger a couple of years ago and a shoot sprouted up from the same location so last year I put a cup around it while it was still green and slowly added soil as the wood lignified.  I thought it had enough roots to support it and it would grow faster on its own.

That picture is a screen capture from my video thumbnail.  That fig did not come from the tree pictured.  I'm guessing that the picture of the fig tree is not his either.  Here is the link to my original post.
