starting figs from cuttings
When I was a kid, my dad started figs by cutting a branch and just stabbing it into the earth. Worked every time. I recently took some cutting and had to trim them down before preparing them. As an experiment, I cut them shorter and took the 'throw away stick pieces' and just stabbed them into a pots of commercial garden soil. Well, the ones I was nurturing failed, but here is a picture of the ones I wasn't planning to keep.
Maybe I'm just trying too hard or trying to be too clever in starting figs. The good old "stabbing-a-stick-into-the-ground" technique isn't doing so badly. Not what I really expected.
