Introduction and Cuttings Available

torontobornNovember 4, 2010

Well, I have been reading for some time now, the posts in this forum, and I would like to thank all of you who contribute regularly to this forum. The information you provide is invaluable.

As you may see from my username, I am in Toronto Canada, and if there are any other Torontonians, please send me an email, and we can keep in touch.

I have about 8-10 Fig trees in my Greenhouse, that I purchased almost ten years ago. The sources are from major nurseries in the Toronto area, Grimo Nut, and relatives direct from Italy.

At this point, I can only identify 1, and I have attached the nursery label. (I will make attempts to identify the others next growing season, and offer up cuttings for trade as well)

I am eager to learn from all of you, and I would also like to expand my collection of fig trees.

If any of you are interested in trading cuttings, just send me an email, and we can arrange a swap. (they are not quite dormant yet, as it is planted inside a greenhouse, probably another 2-4 weeks)

This particular tree is about 12 feet tall, and I will have a considerable amount of cuttings available for trade.

Side Note: since I am new to this, if anyone is interested in cuttings, I have never prepared them before. I assume the following from what I read, and please correct me if I am wrong:

1) cutting length 12" or so

2) cutting width 1/2 to 3/4

3) bubble wrap envelope, with a moistened newspaper/paper towel

4) first class mail

I appreciate your feedback, and interest.

Thanks again to all.

Hi Robert,

Welcome to the forum!! I'm sure the other Canadians will chime in soon and you will have many new friends to trade with. Glad you've re-kindled your interest in more figs after 10 years. How about posting pics of your greenhouse and fig trees? That would be cool to see. How do you heat in winter?

Little John, I will take photos of the greenhouse this weekend, and post, and describe my method of heat.
Stay Tuned.
