Reputable Online Nurseries for Fig Trees
Hello to all!
I'm new to posting here, but have lurked for awhile trying to learn as much as I can. I live in beautiful Bucks County Pennsylvania (zone 6) and have decided to try my hand at growing fig trees in containers. I love to eat them but have never grown them.
I have gone to a few local nurseries looking for stock but no one seems to have any so I thought I'd look online. So far, I have ordered from:
Joe Morle (figtrees.net)
and (gulp, no rock-throwing please) TyTy Nurseries
While I have not received anything yet (only placed the orders within the last week) I'm wondering if any of you could recommend any other places? Also, if there is anyone in my area (near New Hope, PA) who could recommend a nearby nursery I would love to take a road trip. I know Lowes carries them but they were all out when I went there.
One more thing...I am assuming my trees will be delivered bare root; is there a commercial mix I could use to pot them? Or is it best to make my own.
Thanks so much in advance for your help. I am really looking forward to learning a lot from all of you, and taking you with me on my fig-growing journey.
Best to all,
