Bill will be having his first of several meetings on the 10th of April at 2 PM. "Bringing Fig Trees out of Storage"
Who will be attending? Maybe we can wear a ribbon to let other people know who is on the form and meet face to face.
I am interested; about one hour drive (one way) for me...

Man, I would love to go. But 2pm on a week day and close to an hr drive, Ill never be home in time for the kids.
Anyone wanna pick me up a tree and meet me on their way back south?? :-)
Will Bill be listing all of his varieties??
I believe the day would be Saturday the 10th.
I will ask Bill if the list that i now have is up to date, if so i will post.
I emailed him for a list yesterday but he said it would be a couple of weeks before he has it together.
I would be interested in going if other forum people are going to be there.
I am planning a meeting for all the fig enthusiasts. I spoke with Bill and we'll probably have it at his place towards the end of April. I still don't have a clear date, most likely on a Sunday.
I will keep you updated.
Sounds good to me . Can anyone go ? Is there a list we can get on so we don't miss any information on the meeting? Can I buy fig trees or cuttings, if so how much ? Does he charge to attend the meeting ? Thank You . Debbie
Yes anyone can go to Bill's meeting there is no charge to attend. You can buy fig trees before and after the meeting.
Here is a partial list.
Alma,Bataglia,Brown Turkey,Celeste,Conandria, Galban,Melanzana,Negrome,Neri,Neri2 Osborne Sicilian,Stella,Verte,
Bill tells me there are about 20 more to add to this list.
Does Bill post the cost of fruiting sized trees? Wish I could taste before I buy. There are so many I haven't tried, I want them all!!
Bill will be having several meetings. You can contact him at any time for a visit when the figs are ready for tasting. I have posted his e-mail and contact info.
Last year they were $30.& $45. depending on size.

Bill's seminars are excellent. I've attended several and really learned a lot from him.
Thanks Bass, keep me posted. I plan on driving up from Charlotte to attend the meeting. thanks, Dennis
Organic_acer1, what is an Osborne Sicilian? I never hear of that one. Dennis
I should have proof read first there should have been a coma between the Osborne,and Sicilian.
Sorry for any confusion.
which part of Charlotte do you live? I mean North or South?
I would love to see your fig collection in person. I live in Surry county which is approx. 1.5 hrs from Charlotte.
you can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
End of April will be great..fingers crossed the boys don't have ball games that will overlap!
Eagerly awaiting details.
NCA270, I live in North Carlotte. I would not recommend taking a peek at my collection. It's not that much to see. A year from now, I should have a nice collection. I will keep you posted. Dennis
Well then, who is going to Bills on the 10th? And is everybody going to bring some stuff as in a fig swap?
Just double checking, is the meeting still on? And is it at 2 P.M. Thanks
We're planning a meeting for the 25th, if you're not making this one.
Thanks, I'll try and make that one too.
Do we know where the meeting on the 25th will be held??
