Fig Cuttings?

habib90bJune 3, 2013

Hello everyone, actually I just bought my first Fig tree (brown turkey) and as many others have experienced, now I am addicted. I was wondering if anyone out there has any extra Fig cuttings lying around that would be Hardy in my zone (7a). I've been looking around online, but they are pretty expensive, and from what I've read on these forums many people here have many many plants. Thanks in advance.

Habib,

It is kind of the wrong time of the year to get many offers. If you try in the fall you will do better.

People do have some now like you see on ebay but they took the cuttings while the plants were dormant and refrigerated them to sell later.

Habib, what exactly did you order from UC DAVIS? I have alot of seeds from FEDCO that I can trade if you get some interesting figs in March. My FEDCO seeds are in the package, crop of 2012
