A Perfect Gift for a new Baby, or Grandchild...a Fig Tree!
If you are blessed with a new child, or grandchild, become the custodian for a fig tree, to mark the wonderful event. A gifting of a fig tree is perfect, and as the tree grows up with the child, and when they learn how to take care of it, you can then let them take over and become responsible for the nurturing of the tree. With the right care the tree can live for generations.
Yes, a perfect "gift" that keeps on giving.
They will also make great "Memorial Trees" in the warmer climates. Plant one in memory of parents, grandparents, friends/relatives who have been translated.
