Fig Tree Big Suckers
Hi, I am a newcomer to this forum, and am seeking advice on propagating suckers from my fig tree.
I'm not sure what variety of tree this is, as it was here when I bought the house. The tree is large and mature. There are many suckers around it, ranging up to perhaps 4' in height. They appear to be growing directly from the ground, up to 2' from a main trunk, but I suspect that they are actually suckers?
What I would like to do is sever some of these, hopefully along with roots, and pot them up to give to a friend. But I need to know if I can do this at this time of year? The weather has been very inconsistent, last week 90Ã¯Â¿Â½, today 65Ã¯Â¿Â½. We are in drought, but suddenly got 6" of rain in the past two days. I am in zone 7b or 8 in Keene in N. Central Texas, sandy soil in Cross Timbers.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
